The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health has launched a new resource entitled “Radiation Disaster Issues in Children: A Case-Based Approach.” This accredited online lesson is a complement to the previously-released primer, “Radiation Disaster Issues in Children: An Approach to the Patient.”
“Radiation Disaster Issues in Children: A Case-Based Approach” is an online lesson targeted toward health care providers and presents a scenario in which an improvised nuclear device is detonated in a medium-sized American city. There are three pediatric case examples which highlight patient management. The lesson has a practical focus and raises awareness of algorithms and other resources that can be used in patient management during and after a radiological disaster. View the online lesson now.
