NLM’s Nuclear Emergency website

From the Radiation Emergency Medical Management website:

  • Provide guidance for health care providers, primarily physicians, about clinical diagnosis and treatment of radiation injury during radiological and nuclear emergencies
  • Provide just-in-time, evidence-based, usable information with sufficient background and context to make complex issues understandable to those without formal radiation medicine expertise
  • Provide web-based information that is also downloadable in advance, so that it would be available during an emergency if the internet is not accessible
