This study examined whether patients disclosed the same information about suicidal behaviours on a self-report instrument that they conveyed to a clinician in a face-to-face interview. The results indicated a generally high level of agreement between these two forms of suicide assessment. The one exception was the question concerning recent suicide ideation, where patients tended to disclose more on the self-report form. (8 refs.)
