Firearm Marksmanship and Adolescent Lead Exposure: Adverse Health Effects, Surveillance, Control, and Prevention
The goal of this course is to enhance the knowledge of physicians and other healthcare providers about the health impacts of lead exposure at firing ranges and competitive marksmanship among adolescent populations. By enhancing their knowledge, physicians and other healthcare providers can better assess adolescent patients who may suffer symptoms caused by lead exposure, provide informed guidance to their patients and their caregivers, and advocate for measures to control lead exposure in firing range environments.
When you complete this module, you will be able to:
- Describe three measures to control lead exposure in firing range environments
- Describe two appropriate primary prevention and surveillance measures for youth actively engaging in marksmanship
- Discuss two recommendations for medical surveillance of adolescents exposed to lead and action plans to reduce lead exposure.
