Heat Related Illness Prevention (Training)
The goal of this web-based training course is to reinforce awareness of heat-related illness in order to promote the development and implementation of school guidelines, including an emergency plan by coaches, athletic trainers, students, school nurses, parents and teachers. After completing the course, users should be able to: define heat-related illness; identify the three main types of heat-related illness; identify the symptoms, or warning signs, for each type of heat-related illness; describe treatment options for each type of heat-related illness, including return-to-play considerations; and describe steps to prevent heat-related illness.
