Radiological Casualty Assessment Tool

The Radiological Casualty Assessment Tool is a collection of decision aids and forms designed to facilitate the emergency department management of contaminated or exposed casualties during an accident or disaster involving radiation. Funding was provided by CBRNE Research and Technology Initiative (CRTI). The goals of the Tool were to provide information to clinicians on relevant data for clinical evaluation and biodosimetry, and to facilitate documentation. The Tool ws developed and revised through a process involving a live exercise and multiple workshops across Canada over three years from 2006 to 2009.
