Systems of CARE Consulting
There are typically three phases of a Process Improvement effort: 1) assessment of current practices and procedures; 2) training in suicide-specific care (typically the use of CAMS); and 3) quality assurance and follow-up assessment. CAMS-care consultants have worked closely with a range of organizations to assist in determining best practices and implementation of training to meet the needs of clinicians and patients.
A useful example of a Process Improvement which was implemented in U.S. Army is described in detail in this article: Archuleta et al; 2014 Raising the Clinical Standard of Care for Suicidal Soldiers: An Army Process Improvement Initiative

“Dr. Jobes and the CAMS-Care team provide the most cutting-edge, evidence-based suicide risk-assessment and treatment framework for clinicians, counselors, social workers, and other relevant professionals. Our Ohio CAMS-trained behavioral health professionals are now equipped with the skills and documentation necessary to create an effective safety plan which can potentially keep the client out of the hospital. In addition, the CAMS consultants are very professional, easy to work with, and flexible when planning for an in-person CAMS workshop. The post-training consultation calls provide our clinicians with a chance to troubleshoot with the CAMS consultant and other CAMS-trained professionals on incorporating the framework in the workplace.”Austin Lucas
