AoO-TIMs (ACMT) Agents of Opportunity Day Two
NOTE: When you are ready to begin the course, please register/log-in and"enroll"
In recent years there has been growing concern that many of the most likely terrorist threats will involve "agents of opportunity" or materials that are readily available in most communities around the country.
The goal of this online CME course is to increase practitioners' and public health response and planning personnels' awareness of industrial compounds as potential chemical agents of opportunity for terrorism. The course will review the medical and psychological consequences of exposures with a variety of materials and is recommended not only for practicing nursing and medical communities, but also for medical students, physician assistant students, and nursing students to ensure that these soon-to-be graduated practitioners have adequate basic training in recognizing and managing such incidents. Early basic training in graduate health sciences education will ultimately reduce costs, maximize fund of knowledge at an early stage of development and promote direct application to real-world medicine, thus, benefiting 21st Century healthcare.
