Pesticides and National Strategies for Healthcare Providers, Training Program

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting applications from eligible organizations to manage a cooperative agreement to help educate the medical community on how to recognize and treat pesticide-related health conditions.

The long-term goal of the project is to achieve improved

credit:


health for communities at risk for overexposure to pesticides through outreach, technical assistance and training to increase knowledge and awareness of environmental and occupational health risks.

This is a national environmental and occupational health effort solicited by doctors, clinicians, and state health departments.

With this award, EPA seeks to build on the progress of previous project titled “From the Fields to the Exam Room:
Integrating the Recognition, Management and Prevention of Pesticide Poisonings into the Primary Care Setting.” The publication "Recognition and Management of Pesticide Poisoning" was an earlier product of the initiative.

EPA is seeking applications to (1) provide continuing education, training and technical assistance to relevant audiences; (2) update existing, and/or develop new materials and resource tools; (3) conduct outreach to existing and new audiences to use materials and tools; and (4) develop partnerships and a sustainable network of stakeholders.

EPA expects to provide an estimated $500,000 annually, depending on the Agency’s budget, for a total of up to $2,500,000 for five years (2017 through 2022).
