Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Management of CBRNE Disasters PGCMDM IGNOU
The term CBRNE stands for ‘Chemical Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive’. Disasters related to such agents can occur accidentally. However, when used intentionally they become agents of mass destruction. CBRNE disasters are ill-understood, diagnosis is difficult and very little management tools exist to manage these disasters, including medical management. Medical management of CBRNE disasters requires specific knowledge and skill set that is not covered in the undergraduate curriculum. India is particularly vulnerable to CBRNE attacks. Thus,
society and governments need to create special provisions to deal with them. In light of the above facts, IGNOU in collaboration with Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS), Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and active support from Integrated Defence Staff (IDS) have developed a 6 months PG Certificate programme in Medical Management of CBRNE disasters through open and distance learning for MBBS doctors.
After completing the programme, the learner should be able to:
develop competencies on protection, mitigation and medical management of CBRNE casualties
get sensitized about the current R&D initiatives and future directions.
comprehend the parameters, enormity and complexity of CBRNE threat from a medical perspective
describe the impact of chemical, radiological, biological, explosive and nuclear agents on human health
assess the health effects of a CBRNE scenario using external and internal assessment tools
discuss regarding the medical countermeasures, detection equipment and SOPs of medical management of CBRNE impacts.
deliver first aid and initiate immediate life-saving responses to a CBRNE disaster
Medical personnel & students engaged in or interested in disaster medical management
Doctors in armed forces, police forces, health services, railways, airports/ports, & NDRF or State disaster forces who have to or can be called on to respond in face of CBRNE disasters.
