The 2019 RITN workshop will highlight recent developments in resource-constrained environments: (1) optimizing ARS initial assessment and triage, (2) ensuring the availability and appropriate use of medical and psycho-social supportive care, (3) disseminating the latest research in radiation-specific medical countermeasures, (4) applying technology as a force multiplier for care and education, and (5) enhancing collaboration among burn surgeons and RITN professionals. Additionally, the workshop will encourage open sharing of lessons learned from past efforts.
