REMM Changes Its Name
To make it easier for users to find its content, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Radiation Event Medical Management (REMM) web portal has been renamed. The new name is Radiation Emergency Medical Management. Visit the website at http://www.remm.nlm.gov/
REMM provides guidance on diagnosis and treatment of radiation events and is designed for health care providers, primarily physicians, without formal expertise in radiation safety or radiation medicine who may provide medical care during an accidental or non-accidental radiation event.
Searching any of these text strings in NLM will retrieve a link to the REMM home page:
- Radiation Emergency Medical Management
- Radiation Event Medical Management
REMM’s home page URL and all interior page URLs are unchanged.
REMM is produced by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Office of Planning and Emergency Operations, in cooperation with the National Library of Medicine, Division of Specialized Information Services, with subject matter experts from the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and many US and international consultants.
- Guidance for health care providers, primarily physicians, about clinical diagnosis and treatment during mass casualty radiological/nuclear (rad/nuc) events
- Just-in-time, evidence-based, usable information with sufficient background and context to make complex issues understandable to those without formal radiation medicine expertise
- Web-based information that is also downloadable in advance, so that it would be available during an event if the Internet is not accessible.
