Mass casualty management is a key element of emergency response for any naturally occurring disaster and assumes an even greater role for man-made disasters such as a terrorist attack. With the threat of future radiological or nuclear events, there is a need to model and develop new strategies for medical management of large scale population exposures to radiation. Through use of computational modeling, this research will examine the effect of radiation dread and risk perception on behavior amongst first responders and the unique role subject matter experts on radiation exposure play in mass casualty triage management of a nuclear event.
