Title of Research : Predicting Suicide Attempt Among People Who Inject Drugs
Field of Research : Psychiatry
Preliminary Research Design : Analytic Study
Preliminary Research Type : HSR/Social
Preliminary Justification : Suicide is one of the most serious consequences of PWID. Exploration of the risk factors for suicide has clinical implications for early detection of high-risk PWID. Although there is a correlation between PWID and suicidal attempts, a large number of PWID will never attempt suicide. Therefore it is important to find out the accurate predictive factors for suicide attempts among PWID.
Preliminary Aim : This study aim to provide predictive factors for suicide attempt in PWID. The results from the study will also have some implications in suicide prevention programme in Myanmar.
