Highlighting the Importance of Question, Persuade, Refer Training in Long-term Care Facilities

This month, Senior Research Specialist Quinn Lewandowski appeared on the Aging Partners "Live & Learn" segment to talk about Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training in long-term care facilities around the state. The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center is managing a CDC​-funded grant with our partners at the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to equip 50 individuals in 50 different long-term care facilities with the evidence-based and potentially life-saving practice of QPR. QPR is a practice where you: 1) ask a question to talk about suicide and mental health, 2) persuade individuals to seek help, and 3) refer them to resources that can help.
