The National Library of Medicine Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) is updating disaster health information courses and formatting them for self-paced study online. Two updated courses are now available (see below). By the end of the year, there will be four more courses: US Response to Disasters and Public Health Emergencies; Information Roles in Disaster Management; A Seat at the Table: Working with Local Responders; and Health and Disasters: Understanding the International Context.

This class provides a comprehensive overview of the essential resources needed to provide health-related information services for supporting disaster mitigation, planning, response, and recovery.

CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive): Health Information Resources

This class provides an overview of the concepts of CBRNE, including a review of NLM resources that support planning, response, and recovery from the effects of these potential hazards.
