This 4½-day course includes more advanced information for medical practitioners. This program is academically more rigorous than the Radiation Emergency Medicine course and is primarily for Physicians, Clinical Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants desiring an advanced level of information on the diagnosis and management of ionizing radiation injuries and illnesses.
Advanced topics in the diagnosis and management of radiation-induced injuries and illnesses includes the use of cytokines, stem cell transplants, antimicrobials, wound care and other advanced techniques. Group problem-solving is used to thoroughly orient attendees to the management of complex cases.
This course is not recommended for pre-hospital, emergency planning or non-medical personnel. Only brief reviews of health physics fundamentals and emergency department interventions are discussed. Recent completion of the Radiation Emergency Medicine (REM) course is strongly recommended.
