As part of National Water Safety Month, the CPRS Aquatics Section is inviting you to join us for a webinar that covers a case study of an actual drowning incident. Gerry Dworkin will describe the incident in detail; will present the Standard of Care for the prevention, recognition and management of drowning and aquatic injuries; and will show how these standards were breached which resulted/caused this tragic incident.
The presentation will include a power point presentation and will include one, or several, very graphic video clips of an actual drowning incident.
The webinar is planned for approximately 1.5 hours to include a 1-hour case study presentation, followed by a 30-minute question and answer period.
