Nice article on risk assessment

A colleague pointed me to a nice article on suicide risk assessment written by David J. Muzina, MD in the September issue of Current Psychiatry Online.   The article is well-written and well-organized.  The stepwise approach described can be quite helpful.  I wish the article included more on documentation (there is only one sample note, and I'm not sure how helpful it is).   The article also pays scant attention to families.  But otherwise this is a really solid general reference on the subject.
