Save the Date for the 2018 ACMT Satellite Session 

The 2018 ACMT Satellite Session, "Toxic Threats, Chemical Security and Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals," will kick off with a fascinating discussion of counterfeit pharmaceuticals and the scope of this international problem. Brian Donnelly PhD, RPh, Director of the Americas Region, Global Security, Pfizer) will present a counterfeit opioid case, highlighting the multiple steps in bringing raw ingredients from outside the U.S. onto the streets masquerading as a legitimate, diverted pharmaceutical. A panel with representatives from multiple agencies will discuss their approach to the problem of counterfeit pharmaceuticals. Bring your perspective to this discussion as we discuss steps forward and areas of collaboration with medical toxicology.

The second part of the symposium will focus on Chemical Security. The agenda will include an expert group of researchers, disaster response personnel, and educators who will provide insight into chemical terrorism and HazMat response. Topics include current perspectives on modeling of airborne releases, planning for large scale chemical response, access to reliable information, and new and developing medical countermeasures and antidotes. You will hear the Coast Guard perspective on marine-based disasters, and the latest practical recommendations regarding human decontamination following mass chemical exposure – based on real data, as opposed to rote task performance. We will hear presentations on anticipated long-term effects following acute chemical agent exposure. We are happy to announce that Monica Schock-Spana, PhD, a medical anthropologist at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security has agreed to provide a talk debunking some myths about bystander reactions to chemical incidents. These sessions will  provide a stimulating forum for discussion and practical information for you to use when responding to such questions as:

  • the challenge of fentanyl and fentanyl analog exposures – including responder protection;
  • how to access public health resources before, during, and after a chemical event; and
  • how to communicate critical information in a timely fashion to guide treatment and improve patient outcomes.
