100.017

Emergency Preparedness Re Chemical and Bio-Terrorism, Physician Education: Physician members should acknowledge the need for emergency preparedness to include chemical and biologic terrorism tactics. The Texas Medical Association will work with the Texas Department of State Health Services and others to make physicians aware of bio-terrorist possibilities and provide education and information to those likely to provide front-line treatment during a crisis situation (i.e., emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, family practice); explore the establishment of an informal network of experts willing to participate in emergency response studies; and work with the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide for coordination in the event of a bio-chemical attack in Texas (CM-ID Rep. 1-A-99; reaffirmed CPH Rep. 2-A-09).
