KAWASAKI, Ivete Hiroko. Suicide prevention strategies in physicians: systematic literature review. Mudanças [online]. 2021, vol.29, n.1, pp. 77-86. ISSN 0104-3269.

The objective this study was to conduct a systematic literature review to identify and analyze suicide prevention strategies used by physicians. The medical profession is one of the most committing suicide; it is a worldwide and public health problem. WHO (World Health Organization) and other international organizations have worked together to reduce suicide worldwide, but this phenomenon has not been reduced among doctors. The review was performed in five electronic databases (PubMed, LILACS, SciELO, PsycINFO, Cochrane) to systematically find and present published studies on suicide prevention in physicians in the last 11 years (2008-2018). Despite the relevance of the question, only 05 articles that met the inclusion criteria were found. It was observed that there is no clear homogeneity or systematization of interventions, there was little participation of doctors in suicide prevention programs due to the stigma of mental disorder and suicide, but they were effective for those seeking help.
