What is it?
STOP the Bleed (STB) is an initiative that was started be the American College of Surgeons in response to the many preventable deaths that occur in mass casualty events. This program’s goal is to empower every day citizens with the knowledge necessary to address a bleeding crisis until first responders arrive. Our very own Trauma Department is giving workshops throughout the state.
How is OUCHA participating? We are helping the OU Trauma One team at trainings that are open to the public around the state. Additionally, we are networking with OKCPS high schools in order to facilitate a workshop to Seniors in the metro area. You will get one education hour for every training you co-instruct.
How Can I get involved?
1.Email the OUCHA STB Contact to be placed on a standby list for future trainings.
2.Attend a training and register to become a co-instructor.
3.Once you are a registered co-instructor you will receive invitations to participate at STB trainings.
