New IAEA Handbook Helps Doctors Deal With Social Aspects of Nuclear or Radiological Accidents
<p>"Historically, the main concern of medical professionals was the symptom. The patient was a carrier of symptoms to which observation, medical reasoning, and techniques were applied. Therefore, the medical concern did not extend much farther than the biological body. Even when operating in a public health capacity, it was not seen as the responsibility of medical professionals to understand socio-cultural factors, even when they had an obvious influence on outcomes.</p>

<p>The Fukushima nuclear power plant accident of March 11, 2011 has challenged these assumptions."</p>
