Episode 4 - Safe Storage

The fourth episode presents the different ways to responsibly store firearms to support clinicians in having informed, individualized conversations with their patients and making appropriate harm reduction recommendations. Guns that are not stored safely increase the risk of suicide, homicide, and unintentional injury for household members. If a patient has firearms in the home and no one is at immediate risk of harm, clinicians should open a conversation about the importance of safe storage and the available options to reduce the risk of firearm injury and death.
