Homeland Security expert’s Psychological First Aid course to offer CMEs


Main Line Health will be hosting a Psychological First Aid Course on Friday, October 14, 8:30am-4:30pm, in Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Pennypacker Auditorium. The course has been designated for a maximum of (7) AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.


The course, open to all MLH employees and affiliated physicians, will identify the broad range of normal early reactions that people can experience in the immediate aftermath of traumatic events, and will enable participants to use active listening skills to emotionally stabilize a staff member following a critical incident.


The course will be taught by Steven M. Crimando, Principal Diplomate, American Board for Certification in Homeland Security, who will describe the impact of traumatic stress on both body and mind and also explain the role of the MLH Critical Incident Response Team in such situations.


MLH employees can register for this course in HealthStream (CBT) Course Catalog “Psychological First Aid Skills Development.”


Physicians can register by contacting Kristen Woodruff, Program Manager, CIRT/HeartCode at woodruffk@mlhs.org
