Upon registering for each of the class session(s) of choice, students will receive an email within a week of registering with a link to download the information sheet about their career choice. Information includes a description of the health care career, what a typical day may include, how to learn more about the career, as well as suggestions for how to prepare for college in their chosen field.
This is a great opportunity for students to explore the many different fields in health care. Direct any questions to Lisa Rudolph, MSN, RN, CCRN-K, Fort HealthCare Education Services Manager.
QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 1-2 hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers). The process follows three steps: (1) Question the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide, (2) Persuade the person to seek and accept help, and (3) Refer the person to appropriate resources. Trainees receive a QPR booklet and wallet card as a review and resource tool that includes local referral resources.
This class is taught by a certified QPR Instructor and sponsored by Jefferson County Human Services and Fort HealthCare
