Grants and Contracts Details
Abstract: The University of Kentucky BREATHE Program (Bridging Research Efforts and Advocacy Toward Healthy Environments) and its Radon Policy Division’s faculty and staff will complete the following work to advance radon awareness, education, and radon prevention science in Kentucky. Radon Education for Health Professionals and Health Educators We will build on our partnerships within the health care and public health communities to provide radon training via in-person presentations, webinars, and a quarterly health professionals’ e-newsletter to include the latest radon science, training tools, and educational tools to use with their patients and/or residents. We will incorporate discussion of clinical practice guidelines where appropriate. We will also use social media to promote the latest science, events (e.g., NRAM), and educational materials (@UkyRadon). We continue to promote the updated Radon Continuing Education Program course using our detailed dissemination plan. We provide continuing education for Continuing Medical Education (CME), Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN), Community Health Education Society (CHES), Registered Sanitarian (RS), Respiratory Therapists (RT) and other professions (OTHER) who can benefit from the online training material. We will continue to serve as administrators of the CE program. As required annually, we will review and extend the CE course. We will update radon training marketing materials for health professionals and health educators and make them available during our presentations and webinars. We will also make them available on the BREATHE Radon Policy Division website and provide access to the state to our website, just as the state has linked to KGS for access to our geologic radon maps.
