Case Studies in Environmental Medicine (CSEM)
Self-instructional publication designed to increase primary care provider's knowledge of a
hazardous substance in the environment and to aid in the evaluation of potentially exposed patients.
Community Environmental Health Presentations
CEHPs include information about specific types of exposures to hazardous substances, exposure routes
and pathways, health effects, and how to prevent and minimize exposures.
Grand Rounds in Environmental Medicine (GREM)
Grand Rounds in Environmental Medicine are 1-hour continuing-education seminars designed to increase the primary care
provider's knowledge of hazardous substances in the environment and to aid in the evaluation of potentially exposed patients. The GREM seminars are
available and downloadable online in two versions. The first version is scripted PowerPoint presentations ready for medical educators to use in
face-to-face sessions with primary health-care providers, medical students, and others. The second version is a video recorded presentation that
can be viewed online by individuals or groups. Both versions offer approved continuing education credits.
Succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for mixtures of hazardous substances.
Managing Hazardous Materials Incidents (MHMIs)
What is the managing hazardous material incidents (MHMI) series? The MHMI series is a three volume set (with a video)
comprised of recommendations for on-scene (pre-hospital), and hospital medical management of patients exposed during a hazardous materials incident.
Medical Management Guidelines (MMG) for Acute Chemical Exposure
Medical Management Guideline (MMG) for Acute Chemical Exposure Publication intended to aid emergency department physicians
and other emergency healthcare professionals who manage acute exposures.
Minimal Risk Levels (MRL)
The MRL is an estimate of the daily human exposure to a hazardous substance that is likely to be without appreciable
risk of adverse, non-cancer health effects over a specified duration of exposure. The information in this MRL serves as a screening tool to help public
health professionals decide where to look more closely to evaluate possible risk of adverse health effects from human exposure.
Patient Education and Care Instruction Sheet
Patient Education and Care Instruction Sheets
complement the newly developed or revised CSEM and GREM topics. These job aids provide general information on various environmental medicine topics
and give health-care providers quick, ready-to-use materials to aid in patient care and instruction. Patient Education and Care Instruction Sheets
are available and downloadable online. These education sheet are made available for use with patients and do not offer continuing education credit
for their use.
Pediatric Environmental Health Training
Pediatric Environmental Health Training provides in-depth information The Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit (PEHT)
offers health-care providers detailed examples about how to best deliver anticipatory guidance on a range of environmental health issues, especially
during well-child visits.
Priority List of Hazardous Substances
Prioritization of substances based on a combination of their frequency, toxicity, and potential for human exposure
at National Priorities List (NPL) sites.
The ATSDR ToxFAQs™ are summaries about hazardous substances developed by the
ATSDR Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences. Information for this series is excerpted from the ATSDR Toxicological Profiles (read more
about ToxProfiles). Each fact sheet serves as a quick and easy to understand guide. Answers are provided to the most
frequently asked questions (FAQs) about exposure to hazardous substances found around hazardous waste sites and the effects of exposure on human health.
Quick reference guide providing information such as chemical and physical properties, sources of exposure,
routes of exposure, minimal risk levels, children's health, and health effects for a substance.
Succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for a hazardous substance.
Toxicology Curriculum for Communities Trainer's Manual
The Toxicology Curriculum for Communities Trainer's Manual is a result of the collaborative efforts that would lead to
greater community commitment, and would provide greater insight into gaps in toxicology knowledge. The manual provides four training modules for
lectures or seminars for communities, on the topic of toxicology and issues surrounding environmental exposures.
