California Radon Program Provides Resources to Health Care Providers

by Margaret Henderson

California Department of Public Health Indoor Radon Program features resources for health care providers regarding radon exposure and health consequences. The Program encourages physicians to ask their patients about radon exposure and testing.

A link is given for Breathing Easier - Iowa Cancer Consortium, stating that the website “is an incredible resource for Health Care Practitioners and includes videos, brochure templates, and a curated list of research and published articles.”

Featured videos on the website are by the Iowa Cancer Consortium, and a webinar by Dr. Bill Fields on radon and lung cancer.

An additional reference given is to the archives on the Radon Toxicity Case Study. This is available through the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's Case Studies in Environmental Medicine Program.

Additional resources for physicians are provided from the American Lung Association and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The website for health care professionals is available at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CEH/DRSEM/Pages/EMB/Radon/Radon-Information-for-Health-Care-Practitioners.aspx
