The purpose of the study is to determine the educational needs of public health officials concerning their knowledge, attitude, beliefs, and practices with specific reference to ionizing radiation.
The public health directors or designates, working in health departments whose jurisdictions fall within a 60-mile radius of the 14 operating nuclear power plants in the New York-New England region, were studied.
A review of the literature indicates that historically there appears to have been a limited effort to conduct such a needs assessment in the United States.
