Good, K., Winkel, D., VonNiederhausern, M. et al. (2013). Medical Mitigation Model: Quantifying the Benefits of the Public Health Response to a Chemical Terrorism Attack. Journal of Medical Toxicology. 9(2):125-32.
This article describes the Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment (CTRA) and Chemical Infrastructure Risk Assessment (CIRA) Medical Mitigation Model, which was developed to simulate the medical response that would be employed following a chemical attack on the general public. The authors note that this model “can be used to inform first-responder actions/training, guide policy decisions, justify resource allocation, and direct knowledge-gap studies.”
