英文摘要

Introduction: Studies on suicide rate in the elderly have shown vast differences in different regions. This review summarizes the literature on the elderly suicide trend in Chinese populations, namely China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, comparing these data to those in the USA and the UK. Methods: We reviewed 22 articles which we retrieved from a computerized search on elderly suicide in Chinese population from the above four regions. Results: These studies reported a general downward trend in elderly suicide, with higher rates in the Asian Chinese population. These studies also reported a higher rate of elderly male suicide compared to elderly female, with hanging being the most common method in urban areas. Discussion: Looking into suicide prevention programs and their relationship with the suicide trend, we hope to bring across a strong message that suicide is preventable. We also hope to encourage more research in this field, especially in preventive medicine, targeting at-risk individuals in the community.
