Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Friday, October 21, 2011 - 15:00 - Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 15:00

This ~20 hour course is designed to provide the participants with basic first aid skills, as well as specialized skills focused on protest situations.

Skills taught are patient assessment, treatment for wounds, head/neck injuries, illnesses/allergic reactions, heat and cold concerns, chemical burns, "less lethal" weapons injuries, when to seek higher medical care, and general preparedness for changing or unpredictable situations.

Street Medicine is not only for protesters: the course is designed to empower participants to take an active role in keeping themselves and their communities healthy and safe, while reducing their dependence on industrialized medical systems that are often inaccessible or hostile to many people.
