INDIANAPOLIS – Franciscan Health will be hosting four separate Stop the Bleed classes over the course of the 2024 calendar year.

Stop the Bleed teaches the skills needed to provide immediate bleeding control principles and aid until first responders arrive. The class is a combination of lecture and hands-on training meant to empower, train, and equip the non-medical bystander in the critical first minutes after a trauma injury that causes bleeding until first responders can arrive.

Each participant receives:

  • Professional training on blood loss techniques
  • Lecture by an expert in the field
  • Information on how to obtain bleeding control kit

Participants completing the hands-on skills validation will receive a certificate of completion.

Classes are scheduled for Monday, March 11, Thursday, May 23, Tuesday, August 13, and Wednesday, October 9, and are held at the Franciscan Health Education Center, located at 421 N. Emerson Ave., in Greenwood.
