Such retrospective and academic scrutiny about bad outcomes occur rarely in U.S. departments of psychiatry. Education that involves actual patients may be in case conferences, which are oriented toward the future care of patients, or in grand rounds, where cases and large-scale findings about suicide or other morbidities are occasionally discussed, but it is the rare department that holds a "psychological autopsy." These reviews do occur in small, private attending-level meetings (like quality assurance committees), but not in department-wide settings. While residents do learn important points about the risk of and protective factors against suicide that operate among populations (sex, age, and so on), and we also learn important mental status findings that dictate our interventions, we learn little about the individual factors in real cases. In my estimation, this is frustrating to trainees and robs them of an important opportunity to learn psychiatry and perhaps to empathize with a colleague as well.
