Japan’s Dai-ichi nuclear power plant crisis in 2011 impacted countries thousands of miles away. The crisis shed light on several issues including protective action measures and population monitoring. Globalization and the large number of nuclear reactors around the world underscore the need to educate all members of society, particularly healthcare providers, about nuclear power plant emergencies. Program faculty will discuss methods to solidify preparedness for such rare, yet devastating events. Note: This course was originally delivered as a satellite broadcast.
