    schema:description "This book provides sought-after guidance to primary care physicians on preparing for and responding to terrorist events. Chapters offer a fundamental understanding of the epidemiology and relevant clinical aspects of diseases caused by biological agents (anthrax, plague, smallpox, botulism, tularemia, and hemorrhagic viruses), chemical agents (nerve and blister), and radiological agents. The text details how to detect terrorist-caused illness as early as possible, how to provide defensive or preventive therapy, and how to triage and treat ill patients. Emphasis is placed on addressing both the physical and psychological impact on patients and providers. The author also examines how to work effectively with public health officials at the local, state, and national levels on the delivery of preventive and therapeutic measures. Surveillance activities, plans for handling mass casualties, and responding to concerns about risk are discussed as well. The practical approach is also applicable to accidental and natural disasters. This timely resource is invaluable for primary care physicians who want to better understand their role for patients and the public in emergency preparedness."@en ;
