The EAPCCT was a partner in the development of an alerting system for chemical health threats for the European Commission (ASHT II). A brief project overview is available
To inform about the progress of the project, the working group published two ASHT-Newsletters (No. 1 and No. 2), and presented at the EAPCCT Congresses 2010 in Bordeaux and 2011 in Dubrovnik.
The EAPCCT is a collaborating partner in the phase III of the ASHT project (ASHT III).
It is our pleasure to announce the creation of the Clinical Toxicology Recommendations Collaboration. This new scientific collaboration follows the success of the Lipid Emulsion Workgroup and is intended to bring a unified voice for clinical recommendations within the scientific and clinical toxicology communities.
See the Terms of Reference of this collaboration.
The EAPCCT and the AACT have produced a series of Position Statements on gut decontamination and elimination techniques. These consensus documents are evidence based and are intended to improve even further the management of poisoned patients:
