Suicidal Ideation clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • Men and Providers Preventing Suicide (MAPS)

    “Comparison of two different ways to identify and treat middle aged men to prevent suicide”

    open to eligible males ages 35-64

    This study will determine if suicidal middle-aged men who use a personalized computer program addressing suicide risk before a primary care visit are more likely to discuss suicide and accept treatment, reducing their suicide preparatory behaviors and thoughts.This is important because half of all men who die by suicide visit primary care within a month of death, yet few broach the topic, missing chances for prevention.

  • ED Treatment of Suicidal Patients With Ketamine Infusion

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study aims to determine if a single intravenous (IV) dose of ketamine given in the emergency department (ED) can provide a long term reduction in suicidal ideation, lower time to ED discharge, and increase discharge to home or voluntary treatment facilities all while being safe.

  • Helping patients return to normal life after trauma surgery

    “This study will recognize and help with physical and emotional post-injury concerns.”

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The overarching goal of this UH2-UH3 proposal is to work with the NIH Health Care Systems Research Collaboratory to develop and implement a large scale, cluster randomized pragmatic clinical trial demonstration project that directly informs national trauma care system policy targeting injured patients with presentations of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related comorbidity. Each year in the United States (US), over 30 million individuals present to trauma centers, emergency departments, and other acute care medical settings for the treatment of physical injuries. Multiple chronic conditions including enduring PTSD, alcohol and drug use problems, depression and associated suicidal ideation, pain and somatic symptom amplification, and chronic medical conditions (e.g., hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and pulmonary diseases) are endemic among physical trauma survivors with and without traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Evidence-based, collaborative care/care management treatment models for PTSD and related comorbidities exist. These care management models have the potential to be flexibly implemented in order to prevent the development of chronic PTSD and depressive symptoms, alcohol use problems, and enduring physical disability in survivors of both TBI and non-TBI injuries; care management models may also be effective in mitigating the impact of the acute injury event on symptom exacerbations in the large subpopulation of injury survivors who already carry a substantial pre-injury burden of multiple chronic medical conditions.

  • Randomized Trial of Stepped Care for Suicide Prevention in Teens and Young Adults

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This randomized controlled trial will evaluate two approaches to achieving the aspirational goal of Zero Suicide within a health system: 1) Zero Suicide Best Practices initiated through a zero suicide quality improvement initiative within a health system; and 2) Zero Suicide Best Practices plus an innovative stepped care for suicide prevention intervention for adolescents and young adults that matches treatment intensity with risk levels for suicide/self-harm. ..
