This bill, which will be known as "The Child and Family Suicide Prevention Act," would require that licensed physicians, physician assistants, and advance practice nurses who regularly provide pediatric care in the specialties of pediatrics, family medicine, or general internal medicine to 30 percent or more of patients that are children and adolescents complete training related to screening for suicide prevention. The training would be required as a condition of biennial registration, continued licensure, or continued certification, as applicable, and may be provided through classroom instruction, electronic communications, at seminars or professional society meetings, or through other equivalent educational courses or programs. The bill also expands the membership of the board's advisory committee from five members, as provided by current law, to seven members to include one representative each from the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics, New Jersey Chapter.
