REMM - Radiation and Emergency Medical Management: Guidance on Diagnosis and Treatment for Health Providers

Course Description

REMM is a tool from the National Library of Medicine which aims to provide guidance for health care providers and emergency responders about clinical diagnosis and treatment of radiation injury during radiological and nuclear emergencies. REMM is designed to 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. This workshop covers all the basics of REMM, including the content and the various online, mobile and downloadable formats for emergency responders.

  • Use REMM as an educational resource about the management of radiation emergencies
