This program brings together leaders in the field of emergency preparedness and planning to explore the basic principles for creating a comprehensive radiation emergency plan. Drawing from years of direct experience, faculty members will divulge lessons learned in preparing for, responding to, and communicating about radiation emergencies.
Examine the requirements and criteria for creating a radiation emergency plan, and develop the skills necessary to both 1) effectively communicate with the media and public during crisis situations, and 2) medically manage casualties of a radiation emergency.

This program combines lectures and case studies taught by expert faculty to provide a unique learning experience.
The program will help you and your organization communicate crisis details to the media, the public, and the teams responsible for public safety and health by working with people’s perceptions and encouraging the proper responses to a radiological emergency.
