ACC, Tribal Tripartite Health Group partner on nine-week EMR program

December 10, 2020
Assiniboine Community College and Tribal Tripartite Health Group have partnered on the delivery of a nine-week Emergency Medical Responder program in order to address a shortage of skilled responders in First Nation Communities. The program will cover essential skills, emergency medical response training, and preparation for the Emergency Medical Responder Entry to Practice exam. “The current pandemic has demonstrated the need for emergency management training for First Nations to properly respond to health emergencies,” stated the health group’s leaders. “This program is the beginning of First Nations creating the capacity and infrastructure, at the community level, for the transfer of control of health services which are culturally safe and appropriate.” ACC (MB)
