Daigle states that if the concern is to evaluate specific prevention programs, the focus should be on measurements of the intervention process rather than its effects. He argues that the suicide rate & other related factors must be examined in order to prove the effectiveness of a suicide prevention program. If the program objective of lowering the suicide rate among inmates is achieved, success must be attributed to all the related factors, not only to the suicide prevention component.
