Responding to a Domestic Abuse Call (Concord)

Richard M. Flynn Training Facility 98 Smokey Bear Blvd, Concord, NH

Responding to a Domestic Abuse Call: An in-depth look at what happened before you arrived and what to look out for once you get there. Domestic abuse is one of the most complicated and even dangerous calls for first responders. To help you prepare for these calls we are going to pull back the curtain on this form of private violence to better understand the agenda and tactics of the abuser and the reactions and decision making of the victim. Along the way we will answer questions such as: "Why do some victims with no visible injuries die a month later?"; "Why is it that sometimes the only person with injuries is the perpetrator?" and "Why is the victim more likely to die if the perpetrator threatens suicide rather than homicide?"

Mobile Intergrated Healthcare Provider (Concord)

Richard M. Flynn Training Facility 98 Smokey Bear Blvd, Concord, NH

The MIH-P continuing education program consists of classes developed to equip experienced EMS providers with the skills they need to succeed in a mobile intergrated healthcare program. Program topics include high-risk patient populations, available community resources, chronic disease management, pathophysiology of disease, and basic lab techniques and tests. Significant clinical experience is required to enroll in a MIH-P program. This initial rollout of the MIH-P continuing education program is intended to provide an initial cadre of EMS providers with entry-level knowledge and skills and to prepare them for advanced didactic and practical training once active with an MIH program. This initial rollout is not intended to support any one particular program or program type. Nor is it intended to lead to any one particular certification or credential. This MIH-P program is based upon two core concepts. 1. Transitioning from EMS Provider to MIH Provider. This concept introduces students to the role and responsibilities of MIH-Ps. Students will learn how to provide continuous, high-quality patient care as a member of a health care team. They will learn how the EMS Provider’s scope of practice complements the expanded role of the MIH-P. Instructors will prepare students to build long-term therapeutic relationships with patients and sharpen their critical thinking skills. 2. Transitioning from Emergent to Preventive Care. The goal of this concept is to train students to adapt and expand the emergent care patient assessment process to an acute care patient; how to implement a patient’s plan of care; and how to work within a health care team to provide long-term preventive patient care. Students will learn about the role of the MIH-P in assisting with preventive care for the entire community, including immunizations. Clinical Training. As the MIH programs currently operating here in New Hampshire have a variety of focuses this MIH-P program does not encompass a significant practical clinical component. It is instead intended to prepare students for day 1 success in MIH Program specific training provided by each individual MIH program.
