Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Critical Incidents: Implications is organized by Western Schools and will be held from Dec 22, 2016 - Dec 22, 2019.
As we move further into the 21st century, chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear critical incidents are on the rise. Between social media and 24/7 news, we learn about these incidents in real time. Healthcare practitioners are challenged now more than ever to mobilize in an instant to meet the needs of victims and communities during the response and recovery efforts. This course is designed to give clinicians an overview of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear incidents. The topics include how such incidents occur; the toxicity and clinical implications of agents that can be released; how a critical incident scene is managed; mass casualty triage and decontamination procedures; and how healthcare facilities plan for and facilitate the recovery effort as things get back to normal after a critical incident.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
