The WVU Medicine Critical Care and Trauma Institute is recruiting providers to serve as instructors for the federal 'Stop the Bleed' campaign. The 'Stop the Bleed' campaign is a national program that links trained professionals with communities to teach and train teachers, law enforcement staff, first responders, and community leaders in the use of tourniquets, pressure dressings, and other various methods to give people who would otherwise bleed to death a chance to survive.
Instructors don't have to be physicians.
The goal is to get as many people trained as possible in an effort to create a 'Stop the Bleed' headquarters at WVU Medicine, according to Chris Riley, a program coordinator with the WVU Medicine Critical Care and Trauma Institute
Class dates are not set yet. Those interested should contact Riley, who will send out information once dates and locations are finalized.
