EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Disaster Medicine (DM), a discipline arising from the marriage of emergency medicine and disaster management and to the fore in recent times; with current wildfire situations throughout the world being examples of mass scale disasters with significant human morbidity and mortality. DM deals with preparedness, mitigation, response, recovery and prevention of disasters. 1The aim was to develop an educational strategy and reusable format for delivering undergraduate DM courses online. Man-made, weather related, humanitarian and technological disasters occur all around the globe annually yet the majority of medical schools do not have an undergraduate DM program. This project developed an online course structure accessible to medical schools and students throughout the world.Learning theories and models of learning were used to construct a course layout that; encouraged students to be active learners, developed long-term retention strategies and facilitated assessment for and of learning, through innovative educational modalities including novel apps and external online resources. The course focusses heavily on outcome-based education with emphasis on development of applicable skills. Each lecture is divided into a series of learning objectives to allow students master concepts sequentially, followed by questioning to make use of the u201ctesting effectu201d. 2Focused review of current medical educational literature reveals that students learn best when given short, outcome-focused u201cmini-lecturesu201d followed by low-stakes assessment and feedback.Medical schools without trained DM staff now have access to expert online material developed by educationalists with a focus on skills and knowledge retention.

Handbook Of Nuclear  Biological  And Chemical Agent Exposures
Author: Jerrold B. Leikin
Publisher: CRC Press
Release Date: 2007-06-26
Pages: 752
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures presents a unique set of challenges. These scenarios usually involve multiple exposures, sometimes even mass exposures, from a single, often poorly-defined, event. Early symptoms are not distinct and can often be variable. Laboratory analyses may be required from environmental, often nonbiological, specimens. Scene evaluation and pre-hospital decontamination may turn out to be the most important intervention. Hospital resource utilization must be a consideration. Even the pathologist performing autopsies needs adequate preparation. It is with these considerations in mind that the Handbook of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Agent Exposures was created. Taking a concise yet comprehensive, clinical approach to the treatment of these exposures, the authors provide concise information on radiation substances, biological agents, chemical toxins, laboratory tests, and antidotes. The book includes essays on topics such as Field Identification and Decontamination of Toxins, Bioterrorism and the Skin, and Mass Exposures Involving the Pediatric Population. A quick review of the contents will tell you that this book contains the tools you need when facing the formidable tasks of diagnosing and treating nuclear, biological, and chemical agent exposures.

Critical Concepts in Disaster Medicine for Saudi Arabian Emergency Residency ProgramsBader K Alossaimi, MD1-2; Michael Sean Molloy1,3, MD, EMDM1; Alexander Hart, MD1; Amalia Voskanyan1; Abdullah A Alhadhira, MD1; Ritu Sarin, MD1; Gregory Ciottone, MD, FACEP, FFSEM11Fellowship in Disaster Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Department of Emergency Medicine2 Emergency Department, College of Medicine, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, Saudi Arabia3 School of Medicine and Medical Science, University College Dublin, Dublin 4, IrelandAbstract:Introduction:Saudi Arabia, the largest country in the Middle East has recently suffered numerous terrorist attacks resulting in multiple mass casualty incidents. It is also the location of the Hajj, one of the worldu2019s largest yearly mass gatherings during the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. Between 2000 and 2011 flooding accounted for 7 of the 11 most damaging natural disasters in the kingdomu2019s history. Disasters happen unexpectedly, healthcare providers pre-incident knowledge and understanding of basic Disaster Medicine [DM] concepts is crucial to the healthcare systems. As multiple reviews of disaster responses, including those following Hurricane Katrina, have demonstrated that a lack of basic training in disaster operations has a negative effect on patient outcomes. Thus, it is crucial that providers have this knowledge for the healthcare system to respond in an effective, unified manner. Emergency physicians are front-line specialists treating disaster victims additionally playing key roles in both disaster management and incident response. Introducing healthcare providers to best practices is a stated vision of the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties. Standardizing the curriculum of DM taught to physicians during their residency training can accomplish this worthy goal. Aim: To produce consensus on core disaster medicine topics which should be taught to Emergency Medicine residents during their training in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Methods:A Delphi survey of a panel of Saudi Arabian Emergency Medicine Residency Program Directors and experts in DM was conducted with 3 consecutive iterations of surveys. An initial invitation and consent letter were distributed to 16 participants, 6 EM Residency Program Directors, 6 Disaster Medicine experts and 4 Disaster Medicine experts also holding positions as EM Residency Program Directors. The first iteration was a single question (List up to 15 Disaster Medicine core competencies for EM Physicians). In subsequent rounds, each participant reviewed topics summarized by the investigation team which were contributed in the first round. The participants rated each item on a 5-point Likert Scale to establish priorities, until greater than 80% consensus was reached on the topics rated as 4 or higher at the end of round 3.Results:There was a 100% response rate. Only 22 (33.8%) of 65 initial competencies reached u2265 80% consensus on completion of round 3. These included Mass casualty triage (Average rating 5/5), Definition of disasters (4.8/5), Decontamination (4.6/5), Mass casualty incidents (4.6/5), Hospital incident command system (4.6/5), Incident command system (4.6/5), Personal protective equipment (4.5/5), Phases of disasters (4.5/5), Mass gathering planning/management (4.4/5), Blast Mass Casualties (4.3/5), Communication between responders (4.2/5), CBRNE (4.2/5), EMS role in disasters (4.1/5), Types of disasters (4.1/5), Disaster preparedness (4.1/5), Hazard vulnerability analysis (4/5), All-Hazards planning approach (4/5), Surge capacity/capability (4/5), Radiation/Nuclear Disasters (4/5), Pandemic Infections (4/5), Situational awareness (4/5), Basic Disaster Life Support course (4/5).Discussion:This Saudi Arabian expert consensus will drive development of a core Disaster Medicine curriculum to be integrated into Emergency Medicine training programs across the Kingdom. Improved training can allow for a higher level of performance in disaster response. This consensus can also serve as a foundation for introducing Disaster Medicine into other medical education programs across the Kingdom in future.
