Stop the Bleed is a national campaign to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. The Stop the Bleeding Coalition’s goal is to support Stop the Bleed.
Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly skilled health care professionals who work with your organization to advise on and execute plans to address issues such as emergency and preventative care, environmental conditions, facility and equipment safety, and other sports- and job-related matters. ATs can help your school, business or community organization better oversee injury prevention, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation.
