  • Perhaps a brief video link demonstrating basic navigation of this page
  • b/c it remains in testing stages, CHEMM-IST is not intended for patient care yetProvide learners with several scenarios and have them open to link and to use tool
  • At end: ask learner to find specific information/procedures regarding certain agents (which section will ultimately depend on audience)
  • Activity here (or at end) asking learners to find specific information relevant to their situation; scenario learning – provides relevancy and engages user
  • Sample search: To search for mydriasis, for example, the user would simply click on “M” and scroll down the selected page until finding the desired word.
  • Chemm

    1. 1. http://chemm.nlm.nih.gov/ Chemical Hazards Emergency Management Produced by U.S. Dep. of H.H.S. and the NLM Designed to enable first responders/providers and emergency personnel to plan for and respond to effects of mass-casualty incidents involving chemicals Downloadable and web-based resource Contains interactive tools, checklists, guidelines, lists, directories, scenarios and other materialCHEMM: Introduction

    3. 3. Find materials on web site according to:Content treestructure map Personnel status or readiness Chemical emergency scenario aspectsCHEMM: Site Navigation
    4. 4. • A prototype support tool for identifying the chemical a patient was exposed to in a mass casualty incident • Asks up to 15 multiple-choice questions to determine a hypotheticalhttp://chemm.nlm.nih.gov/chemmist.htm patient’s syndrome.• Not intended for actual patient careCHEMM: CHEMM-IST
