Anyone who may respond to a radiation disaster, whether as a professional or as a volunteer must have an understanding of these aspects and how to best address them.

Following completion of the course, participants will be able to:

2. Describe the role of public health and the health community in radiation disasters.
3. Distinguish the unique psychological effects of radiation disasters.
4. Define skills and techniques used when performing Psychological First Aid in radiation disasters.
