Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The Dutch government has set up a project on public health measures to be followed in the event of a nuclear accident or disaster. The project includes curative and preventive measures, together known as direct measures. This article summarizes the curative measures to be used both on-site and in the action zone, during transportation, and in the hospital Accident and Emergency Department. Preventive measures including public information, sheltering, iodine prophylaxis, decontamination, evacuation, and the use of supportive nuclear teams are also discussed.
