6791Presented by: Fallon Ambulance Service Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast. Emergency responders aren’t always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately. You Are the Help Until Help Arrives. According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent an injured person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. Learn how you can help by taking time for yourself or by teaching your community life saving skills until help arrives. This event will be open to MRC, CERT, and the public. 4/5/2018 8:00:00 PMPublic Health Week: You Are the Help Until Help Arrives4/5/2018Public Health Week: You Are the Help Until Help Arrives ( Brookline)
6771**THIS IS A 2-DAY TRAINING** Your registration here indicates you will attend the March 13th & March 14th sessions. Psychological First Aid has long been established as the gold standard of disaster responses. Created by a global team of experts, it is the only intervention endorsed by both the World Health Organization & the U.S. government for use in the aftermath of traumatic events. The goal of this comprehensive two-day training is to prepare participants to deliver basic behavioral health disaster response skills following large-scale disasters or critical incidents, such as homicides, suicides, accidental deaths, & similarly distressing events. Participants will be presented with the evolution of efforts to assist survivors following trauma and provided with an overview of the human stress response and how it affects the choice of interventions used with distressed individuals.3/13/2018 9:00:00 PMPsychological First Aid3/13/2018Psychological First Aid ( Newton)
6781The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, was enacted on August 21, 1996. Most of us believe that our medical and other health information is private and should be protected, and we want to know who has this information (and how it must be protected). In an emergency – or even at a flu clinic or the Marathon – MRC & CERT volunteers need to know what information may and may not be shared. This training is strongly recommended for volunteers without a medical license, to ensure compliance with Federal law.2/28/2018 7:30:00 PMBasic HIPAA Training (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) 2/28/2018Basic HIPAA Training (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) ( Brookline)
