Emergency services physicians and nurses will be among the first clinicians to see and treat victims of radiation emergencies. Clinicians of all specialties will be responsible for providing care and information to:
  • Patients admitted to the hospital
  • Patients presenting for follow-up care
  • Concerned individuals
  • Others with questions about health effects related to the emergency

To help clinicians develop plans and response capacity for radiation emergencies, CDC has the following resources:
