A Real Need to STOP THE BLEED®
The Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) Trauma Program wants to support the community to be better prepared for traumatic events through awareness, education and bleeding management training.
TBRHSC Trauma Program Regional Injury Prevention Leads have specialized training as instructors in STOP THE BLEED®, a course that teaches how to stop bleeding in a severely injured person. Only certified health care providers can instruct a STOP THE BLEED® Course. The TBRHSC Trauma Program wants to enhance public awareness for this life-saving program that is available to all residents of Northwestern Ontario.
TBRHSC Trauma Program offers STOP THE BLEED® training to the general public, local businesses, and any people that work in public areas or venues that may be a first person on scene until a first responder arrives (e.g. security, event staff, and vendors).
