*Suicide deaths in Northern Ireland are defined as deaths from Self-inflicted Injury (also referred to as intentional self-harm) as well as Events of Undetermined Intent. This is consistent with the UK National Statistics definition. A death which is suspected to be suicide must be referred to the Coroner with the information provided by coroners at registration of the death is used to code the underlying cause of death. In some instances, it can be difficult to establish whether the cause of death was suicide. If it is not clear, or the Coroner has not specifically stated that it is a suicide, these are coded as 'Undetermined’. Following a quality exercise between NISRA Vital Statistics Unit and the Coroners’ Service, to better understand drug related deaths and intent, improvements have been made in order to reduce the number of deaths coded as ‘undetermined’ since Quarter 3 2018. These changes have resulted in a discontinuity in the statistical series, with the number of ‘undetermined’ deaths reducing from 132 in 2017 to 10 in 2019. NISRA is working with the Coroners’ Service to review and revise, as necessary, drug related deaths within the ‘undetermined deaths’ category from 2015 to 2018. NISRA recommends that until this review has completed users should refer to the sub-series relating to self-inflicted injury (also referred to as intentional self harm) only, as this is unaffected by the discontinuity outlined above and remains a reliable indication of the trend in suicides over recent years.

Theme 6: Developing Collaboration
Key long term outcomes:
          A strategic approach to Public Health
Strengthened collaboration for health and wellbeing
No high level indicators have been identified at this stage for the theme ‘Developing Collaboration’. This theme addresses the need for strengthened collaboration and co-ordination across all levels of society through a ‘whole system approach’. Progress in the other indicators will provide some measure of the effectiveness of collaboration for health, however this set of indicators may need to be expanded as work progresses to monitor specific aspects of the framework or its impact. Monitoring will also be developed at local levels.
