The School of Health Sciences tailored this programme for NSA trainers with the aim of developing their skills in health and wellness. Fourteen NSA trainers participated in the programme and followed courses about nutrition and exercise, and the role that both play in improving health and wellness.
Participants also reviewed common mental health concerns and learned techniques that help in stress management. In the practical section, the participants completed a CPR training and obtained their CPR provider certificate by AHA (American Health Association). The School of Health Sciences at CNA-Q is an accredited centre for AHA, which provides training to many community and clinical stakeholders in Qatar.
