Don’t Overlook Assessing Environmental Exposures — During a Disaster and Every Day


Environmental hazards are often not considered during patient intake. Taking a full exposure history of patients during intake can ensure an accurate diagnosis, both during a disaster situation, or in an everyday consult.

During this COCA call, clinicians will learn how to utilize the expertise and support from the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSUs).

The recordings (audio, slides, and transcript) for this call will be posted on the webpage a few days after the COCA Call.

Free Continuing Education (CE) is available for this COCA Call. Please see below for instructions on how to receive CE.
