Health professionals will be required to have some foundation knowledge in environmental toxicology to combat increasing morbidity/mortality indices due to environmental contamination. However very little training in these specialised topics is delivered in Human Health Science degrees due to time and curriculum constraints. We have created a short training course that has shown to be effective in providing Pharmacy students with basic skills to tailor a complete protection decontamination and restoration strategy for environments contaminated by chemicals. The web-based recovery tool to respond to chemical incidents developed by Public Health England would be an effective resource to provide this specific training.
