Course Description

PER 211, Medical Management of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) Events answers these questions and more as you learn how to distinguish between different agents of concern that could be used in a major incident.

This course is a combination of facilitated discussions, small-group exercises, Human Patient Simulator hands-on scenarios and traditional classroom discussions. Exercises are conducted in CBRNE scenarios using both adult and pediatric Human Patient Simulators to reinforce classroom lectures and interaction.

This course promotes critical thinking skills while utilizing the RAPID-Care concept. The multi-disciplinary audience helps to strengthen information sharing, communications, and medical surge capabilities.
