The aim of the Self-Harm and Suicide Prevention Training Audit Tool (SHSPAT) is to assure the consistency and quality of training available in relation to self-harm and suicide prevention. Developing a quality assurance framework helps to facilitate best practice in relation to self-harm and suicide prevention training and aims to promote quality improvement.
The development of the SHSPAT resulted from the findings of four streams of work:
1. A rapid scoping review of evidence of best practice in the design and delivery of selfharm and suicide prevention training.

2. Interviews with professionals involved in self-harm and suicide prevention work within the region.

3. Interviews with people with lived experience of self-harm and suicide nationally.

4. Mapping of training to the NHS Health Education England (HEE) Self-Harm and Suicide Prevention Competence Frameworks.
