CALM Training & Naloxone Training – Agrisafe, Tara Haskins DNP, RN, AHN-BC, Certified CALM Instructor; Total Farmer Health Director, Agrisafe

CALM Training: Conversations on Access to Lethal Means (CALM) is a suicide prevention training that encourages safe storage of lethal means (firearms and medications) for individuals in crisis. Many people do not access behavioral or physical health care despite having thoughts of or being at risk of suicide. Yet many of them signal to others – directly or indirectly – that they are struggling. This training is neither anti-gun or anti- medication and is designed to be a specific part of suicide prevention. Using instructor-led content, videos, and an agricultural case study, learners explore gun-friendly messaging and how to engage gun owners to consider storage options and suggestions for unique strategies for safety. Strategies addressing access to medications are included. Participants learn how to navigate conversations with someone who might be in crisis in a collaborative, non-judgmental, and supportive manner. All participants will receive a complimentary strategy item, CALM handouts, and an official CALM/AgriSafe completion certificate.

Naloxone Training: Overdose deaths are a leading cause of injury-related death in the United States, with the majority of overdose deaths involving opioids. This epidemic does not discriminate among age, sex, or county lines. Naloxone is a lifesaving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids when given in time. This session is designed to prepare all communities and non-medical public and safety professionals to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. Through instructor-led content and illustrative videos, participants will learn the warning signs of opioid overdose and how to intervene safely using naloxone. Audience members will have the opportunity to practice administration of nasal naloxone using a nasal dose trainer. All attendees will be provided: 1. One free dose of nasal naloxone for emergency use with recommendations for storage, and 2. An official Overdose Lifeline/AgriSafe certificate of completion.

Duration: 4 hours
Cost to register:  $95

Scenario-based Farm Emergency Response Training and Farm Theater – Agromedicine, Alyssa Spence, EdD, NC Agromedicine Institute; and Marie Bullock, SFX Makeup Artist

Participants are trained in the farm emergency response and then allowed to apply their skills through role-play.  To help other agricultural safety and health professionals replicate this strategy, they either need help from an SPX make-up artist or training in basic moulage. To demonstrate and help participants learn basic moulage skills, I have funding to engage an SFX makeup artist with experience training military personnel for trauma response scenarios, including farming injuries.

Duration:  3 hours
Cost to register:  $95

Thursday, June 20th 10:00 am  – 12:00 pm PST 

Bringing the Total Worker Health® Approach to Farm Workers – Instructor(s): Drs. Katia Costa-Black and Anjali Rameshbabu; Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, Oregon Health & Science University 

The purpose of this workshop is to explain the TWH approach and how it can be applied to advance health, safety and well-being of farmworkers. Farmworkers often work in hazardous conditions, exposed to pesticides, extreme weather, physical and psychological strains. The demanding and often isolating nature of farm work can also take a toll on the mental health of farmworkers. Often these hazards are inter-related and are not comprehensively addressed.  Total Worker Health®(TWH) is a term and a vision developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) to expand our understanding of all types of hazards and reduce health inequities in the workplace.  This workshop will provide an overview of the core principles and value of the TWH approach to advance farm worker health, safety and well-being. Presenters from one of NIOSH TWH Centers of Excellence, the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, will explain the TWH approach and its value proposition and share with participants what they have learned so far from the TWH applied research in the agriculture environment. Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss this topic and discover important evidence-based resources on this increasingly relevant topic.

Duration: 2 hours, following the NORA Sector Council Mtg
Cost to register: $40


1:00 pm – 5pm – Thursday, June 20th.
