    Default Radiation Disaster Medicine: Perspective from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident

    Radiation Disaster Medicine
    Perspective from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident
    by Koichi Tanigawa and Rethy Kieth Chhem

    Pages: 136
    Publisher:
    Edition: 1st., 2014
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-3-319-02215-4


    Description
    Various roles of physicians in the early responses to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident were described and reviewed according to the competency-based framework of CanMEDS. It was found that most physicians from various medical specialties including radiation disaster medicine were unprepared to deal with a combination of disasters (earthquake and tsunami) compounded by a technological disaster due to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear powerplant meltdown. Challenges and lessons learned in the wake of the Fukushima accident were also examined, whereby the weakest spot that has been identified by physicians on the front line is the ability to communicate effectively with various publics about the risk of radiation on human health.
