WILDERNESS RISK MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE
A newly formed working group, headed up by Amber Barnett, the Wilderness Risk Management Task Force is still sifting through all that is available and getting excited to innovate and collaborate. The group’s main three initiatives so far:
1. Curriculum design: what can people train or use to support staff to understand and use the Stress Continuum and supplemental documents.
2. Peer Support: Looking at systems and resources to better support staff internally. This is more about mentorship and support not as "experts" rather a way to support healthy staff and organizations.
3. Change Management: looking at ways to get staff from the top down on board with looking at the health and well-being of the staff and the organization. Looking at what resources people need to help support implementation.
