Program Description: Few U.S. health professionals have experience with CBRNE incidents.

This course, adapted from materials on the CDC’s website, introduces information relevant to the care of casualties from CBRNE incidents. knowledge of the unique patterns and management characteristics of CBRNE threats and associated medical conditions is needed. After participating in this educational activity, participants will have enhanced knowledge in evaluating CBRNE incidents and managing their victim.
