First Aid for Parents
2020-03-04 | By ACCESS
ACCESS is delighted to share that starting in May 2020, we will be offering international parents of young families a chance to learn or brush up on their First Aid skills for young families. We are delighted to be able to work with Linda Malley on this project, as well as our partners at Big Ben Kids. Together we are sure this course will benefit many – for now, in The Hague area.
Linda Malley has been providing this course to and through many organisations in the Netherlands. The feedback is impressive, as is the knowledge she shares. Among the topics covered are: caring for unresponsive breathing casualties; CPR; choking; wounds; bleeding; shock and seizures. Some hands-on examples of what to do with minor injuries – sprains and strains; head injury; burns, bites and stings, severe allergic reaction; heat exhaustion and asthma, will also be covered.
Thank you sooo much for coming today and sharing your knowledge with us. It was exceptionally good, you were absolutely amazing! Your seminar reached not only 30 people today but 2700 Turkish families and we might save actual lives now, thanks to you! – Seda, Amsterdam Turkish community Nov 2019
