Abstract

Bioterrorism information including the role for professional health providers is increasing daily. Because this subject creates a variety of personal feelings and is very new information, many nurses ignore opportunities to educate themselves thinking, "It will never happen to me."

 

Every American, especially healthcare personnel, must be knowledgeable and up-to-date about prevention and intervention strategies as well as their responsibilities. This article outlines the current concerns, approaches, and roles of home care nurses in bioterrorism.
