[Research Presentation] Purpose: The aim of this study is to use a new assessment form to identify risk factors of self-mutilation in adolescents and adults. Application was focused on Emergency Department settings. Methods: Risk factors were reviewed using an EBSCO data base search and were categorized under each section of the Scars, Links, Injuries, Clothing, and Environment (SLICE) assessment tool. Opinions of 5 psychiatric and other professionals of different disciplines were reviewed for construct reliability and used for identified needed revisions.  The tool was tested for inter-rater reliability. Results: Minimal changes have been required for the assessment tool after review from Psychiatric Professionals. Inter-rater reliability reported good reliability. Conclusion: The SLICE tool can be used in the emergency department setting for early diagnosis and intervention. Further study using multiple discipline settings and cultures are needed.
