Abstract:

The Military Unique Curriculum MUG consists of 24 individual learning modules The Center for Total Access CTA applied for a FY04 grant of 298,200 to 120.000 to update these modules but only 120,000 was awarded Since the funding that we applied for was cut by 60 It was decided to concentrate our efforts on updating the eight modules of the Military Unique Curriculum that dealt with Chemical, Biological, Radiological Nuclear, and Explosive CBRNE topics. These modules are entitled 1 Chemical Casualties Introduction 2 Chemical Casualties Vesicants 3 Chemical Casualties Nerve Agents 4Chemical Casualties Pulmonary Agents 5Chemical Casualties Cyanide 6Biological Warfare and Terrorism 7 Triage and Treatment of Radiation Casualties 8 Wounds of War There were three reasons for selecting these eight modules out of the twenty- four MUC modules 1 The United States is at war and these modules were felt to be the most valuable to the deployed military medical personnel 2 These eight were selected because of the pressing and urgent need to provide CBRNE education to military medical personnel in response to the 9 January 2004 Memorandum from the Assistant Secretary of Defense of Defense for Health Affairs Dr William Winkenwerder see Appendix E 3We had access to up-to-date educational material from the Basic Disaster Life Support BDLS course.
