News from CREAL


Within the OPERRA project, the Centre for Research in Environmental Health (CREAL), an ISGlobal allied center, and the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) from Germany, organised two complementary workshops, held in Barcelona, drawing on lessons learned from inside and outside the radiation field.

The first workshop on “Lessons learned about somatic health effects from radiation and non-radiation accidents", took place on 13th October 2015 and aimed to review lessons learned about somatic effects from radiological and non-radiological accidents and to evaluate how those findings have been/can be taken into account in designing post-accidental responses and follow-up of affected populations.

The second workshop on “Social and Psychological Consequences of Disasters and Emergencies", held on 14-15 October 2015, aimed to review ethical aspects and social and psychological effects of emergency situations (radiological and non-radiological) and to evaluate how those findings have been/can be taken into account in designing post-accidental interventions to alleviate the negative social and psychological consequences in affected populations.
