15 Nov UCSC joins the Stop the Bleed Initiative
NO-FEAR partner Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC) has recently joined the “Stop the Bleed” initiative, that was started by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and Hartford Consensus, and adopted in Italy by SICUT (The Italian Society of Emergency and Trauma Surgery). The main objective of the initiative is to provide teaching and training to civilians on how to stop a life-threatening bleeding, because they can offer the first help in the case of mass casualty incidents. The Stop the Bleed initiative has also been adopted in other EU countries, such as France. The course takes approximately two hours and provides participants with practical skills on stopping bleeding using dressing, compression, and tourniquets.
