About This Event

Bleeding is one of the top causes of preventable death in trauma.

20% of people who have died from traumatic injuries may have survived with quick bleeding control.

Stop the Bleed is part of a national campaign to address the most preventable cause of death in the nation: uncontrolled bleeding.

This course is led by our Trauma Program Injury Prevention Team and will help you feel empowered to make a life-or-death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs.

Through our Stop the Bleed course, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and learn how to intervene effectively.

While you may hope to never need to use them, the skills you learn could help you save a life.

This course is free and this session is offered on a drop-in basis - no registration required.

Upon arrival, please enter South Shore Hospital by using the McKim Family Main Entrance and speak to our concierge team, who will guide you to the right location.
