Meeting of Nuclear Emergency Medical Care Advisors

In case of the occurrence of a nuclear disaster, medical institutions, which play a central role in nuclear emergency medical care such as Nuclear Emergency Core Hospitals, and/or which meet certain requirements, are supposed to cope with the case. These medical institutions are designated.

The Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) appoints Nuclear Emergency Medical Care Advisors from the physicians and radiological technologists belonging to the hospitals designated as Nuclear Emergency Core Hospitals, etc. and the Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital & Atomic-bomb Survivors Hospital, and the JRCS organizes the “Meeting of Nuclear Emergency Medical Care Advisors”.

Additionally, they review the modules and educational materials (textbooks) used at the “Nuclear Disaster Response Basic Training”, which commenced in FY 2014.
