Law Enforcement Training and AIDS Education Earn Awards for d’Vinci

The Davey Awards recently recognized d’Vinci Interactive for exceptional online training for the PA Chiefs of Police Association and The National Library of Medicine’s AIDS Community Information Outreach Program.

Working with the Keystone Crisis Intervention Team, d’Vinci created the “Responding to Victims of Trauma” course to teach officers to better assist victims of trauma. Within the eLearning course, officers are given scenarios to help them recognize the physical and mental signs of trauma and how to communicate with the victims. After the three modules, officers understand trauma, how people react to it and the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

As part of a National Library of Medicine grant-funded project, d’Vinci developed four interactive eLearning courses and assessment tools in partnership with POZ, an award-winning print and online information source for people living with and affected by AIDS.

The scenario-based modules cover HIV/AIDS risks, testing and prevention, what to do when newly diagnosed, and aging topics. A self-assessment survey and links to additional resources add to the educational experience.

The Davey Awards honors the best in web, design, video, advertising, mobile and social from agencies worldwide.
