Webinar: CIPSRT Training – Outcomes and upcoming!

Date and time: Tuesday, August 29, 2023, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST (Regina time)

Learn more about current training offered through CIPSRT and funded via Public Health Agency of Canada. In this webinar, Rachel Werrett, Training and Development Manager, will discuss its newest course, Sleep 101, and other training opportunities available through the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT). Learn some of the newest post-course outcomes from previously funded CIPSRT training and development opportunities.

Given the increased understanding of the importance of sleep to both mental and physical health, CIPSRT has partnered with Dr. Colleen Carney, Director of the Sleep and Depression Laboratory at Toronto Metropolitan University, to develop a sleep course for PSP. Sleep 101 is offered in a fully online format with 4 live sessions that build upon the concepts introduced in CIPSRT’s Sleep Toolkit for public safety personnel.

Through its national network and support from Canadian public safety personnel leadership, CIPSRT responds to the identified needs of public safety personnel, clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders. Through the facilitation of high quality and easily accessible care and resources, CIPSRT has become a hub for addressing the health research needs of personnel and their families. Training for public safety personnel (PSP) may take on many forms, such as efforts to reduce stigma, increase knowledge, or minimize mental health disorders through resiliency training and early intervention programs.
