Description

Mounting an effective response to a terrorist attack or, just as importantly, managing a possible terrorist incident, is the direct professional responsibility of community physicians, occupational health physicians, accident and emergency staff, general practitioners and doctors in the Armed Forces. This handbook offers such professionals a broad range of clinically relevant information in an immediately accessible format. It collects together data, which is not available in any one other volume, and presents it in a balanced and objective way, while putting the potential risks into perspective. "Responding to Terrorism" is also relevant to paramedics and nurses in a wide range of disciplines as well as to members of the emergency services.
