Abstract:

The study defines the most essential environmental health requirements during and following nuclear attack in order to provide environmental health personnel with guidelines in the development of integrated environmental health services in their communities. The manner in which normal duties could be expanded to meet the needs of nuclear disaster are described. The academic requirements of several environmental health disciplines are defined and changes are suggested to better prepare these disciplines to cope with nuclear disaster problems. Several feasible and appropriate methods for the dissemination of expanded function information to professionals already in the field are discussed. The development, publication, and distribution of a comprehensive manual on disaster environmental health problems is recommended. Author
