Injury Prevention Programs

Name of Program Website Description
Stop the Bleed or STB https://www.stopthebleed.org/ It is estimated that more than 30,000 lives could be saved a year with effective bleeding control and no matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. Stop the Bleed is a national campaign to provide first aide training so that bystanders are able to act as immediate responders.
 
In a Stop the Bleed course, you’ll learn three quick techniques to help save a life:
  • How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound
  • How to pack a wound to control bleeding
  • How to correctly apply a tourniquet.
 
Matter of Balance or MOB https://mainehealth.org/healthy-communities/healthy-aging/matter-of-balance Many older adults experience a fear of falling which often limits their daily activities. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. It includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group of 8 to 12 participants led by a trained facilitator.
 
The program is designed to benefit older adults who:
  • Are concerned about falls
  • Have sustained falls in the past
  • Restrict activities because of concerns about falling
