TN-RAS9090-1807746 Regional Training Course on Train the Trainers for Medical Physicist Supporting the Medical Response to Radiation Emergencies, Seoul, Republic of Korea from 17 to 28 June 2019.

TN-RAS9090-1807746 Regional Training Course on Train the Trainers for Medical Physicist Supporting the Medical Response to Radiation Emergencies, Seoul, Republic of Korea from 17 to 28 June 2019.



Purpose

The purpose of the event is to provide the participants with a good understanding of the role of Medical Physicists in preparedness and response to a nuclear or a radiological emergency.

Scope and Nature

 

This workshop will consider 3 main aspects for the training, two of them will be integrated on a 10 days schedule, as follows:

 

The first part is an online module that will provide an overall of preparedness and response to radiation emergencies, and as an introduction to the medical aspects related to the response to radiation emergencies. This module should be completed by the participants before the workshop starts. The second part of the workshop contains technical aspects related to understand the role of medical physicists and the multiple functions that may develop in preparedness and response to radiation emergencies. As well as, to understand how their knowledge can be applied to support the medical response.

The third part of the workshop will focus on methods and application of training best practices. The workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, simulation, role play, and practical sessions followed by discussions with the workshop participants.

The topics include the following:

· Preparedness and Response to a nuclear or a radiological emergency;

· Concepts on IAEA safety standards;

· Radiation basics;

· Dose assessment and reconstruction;

· Radiation measurements and instrumentation;

· Monitoring and decontamination of people;

· Biological effects;

· Cell and tissue effects;

· Stochastic and deterministic effects;

· Protection strategies for the public;

· Protection strategies for the workers;

· General principles of medical management;

· Mental health effects;

· Effective communication;

· Selected case studies;

· Role of the IAEA in a nuclear or a radiological emergency;

· Visiting relevant medical emergency response facilities;

· Instructional design; and

· Training development and delivery techniques  

Participants’ Qualifications and Experience

Medical physicists:

· Minimum of 5 years of experience;

· Responsible for radiation protection functions at hospitals or Educational Organizations;

· Involvement in provision of education and training (especially trainers);

· Preference will be given to candidates involved in local, regional or national emergency response activities;

· Medical health physicists with a post graduate degree that meet the above experience and radiation protection qualifications will be considered;

· The short summary of their experience with nuclear or radiological emergencies, as well as, the experience as a trainer will be also considered by the selection panel;  

· English language proficiency is required for this activity.

 

The workshop is intended for medical physicists working in hospitals, who may be requested by their institution or national authorities to join or support nuclear or radiological preparedness efforts.
