Description: 
By completing this course you will become a Poison Prevention Educator for the Georgia Poison Center. We hope that after completing this program you will be well equipped to teach others about poisonings and what to do in a poisoning emergency. The Poison Prevention Training Program (PPTP) was designed to increase the number of Georgians reached with poison prevention education. Healthcare professionals and community members interested in the safety and welfare of their communities are invited to attend. Upon completion of the training, individuals will be equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to plan and implement poison prevention activities for people of all age groups to their community. The PPTP is built on a foundation of epidemiological data; health behavior and health education theory; and adult and childhood education theory. Experts in the field of toxicology, injury prevention and education assisted with the development. The PPTP is designed to encourage the adoption of long-term behavior change, maintenance of a safe and healthy environment and to teach Georgians to identify poisons, prevent poisonings, and respond appropriately in poison emergencies. The GPC’s education department believes that our collaborative efforts will encourage Georgians to adopt safe and healthy poison prevention habits.
