IPHI (Institute for Public Health Innovation) is offering CHWs First Aid Training.
This is an excellent training to consider today because as Community Health Workers (CHWs) are an essential part of the healthcare system, especially in low-income and underserved communities. We are frontline health workers who provide a range of services, including health education, counseling and referrals to health services.
First aid training is important for CHWs because it equips us with the necessary skills to provide immediate assistance to individuals who have been injured or are experiencing a medical emergency. CHWs can be the first point of contact for individuals who need medical attention, and our ability to provide first aid can make a significant difference in the outcome of an emergency situation.
First aid training for CHWs includes learning how to recognize and respond to common medical emergencies such as heart attacks, strokes, and seizures. You will also learn how to manage wounds, burns, and fractures. To learn more check out their information below and sign up for the October 26, 2023 class. Contact them today!
