The CT laboratory coordinators continue to reach out to the health and medical community by offering training for CT preparedness at hospitals and county health departments (CHDs). This training covers chemical terrorism awareness and the collection of clinical specimens after a chemical terrorism event. Hospital and CHD staff play an important role in the response to a chemical exposure event when clinical specimens are collected for analysis. For your convenience and to increase participation, this training can be presented at your facility. Each course lasts approximately one hour with one 15-minute break between courses. Florida clinical laboratory and nursing continuing education credits will be offered. Training manuals, “hands-on” exercise materials, and CT preparedness kits will be provided.

This training is recommended for physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, emergency department personnel, phlebotomists, hospital and health department laboratory personnel and others who may collect clinical specimens. Please contact Angela Ren at (813) 233-2293 to schedule a class for your facility.
