Medics and Outreach Volunteer Collaborative (MOV)
We are currently working on creating a training and certification for outreach and medics.
Level 1: Outreach volunteers must undergo a 40 hour training that will cover safer injection, safer sex aka transmission factors, anti-oppression, cultural humility, interpersonal violence (IPV/DV) advocacy, trauma informed care, harm reduction and transformative justice conflict resolution. They will learn to utilize best practices including nonviolent communication and motivational interviewing.
Level 2: Medic volunteers will be trained as outreach workers but will also obtain certification in CPR & First AID and go through a medic specific training with us or another medic collective. Outreach medic will be able to do basic medical care in the field.
