Public Workshop - Medical Countermeasures (MCM) for a Burn Mass Casualty Incident, September 27-28, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled "Medical Countermeasures (MCM) for a Burn Mass Casualty Incident." This workshop will engage stakeholders across the public and private sector in strategic dialogue related to development, evaluation, deployment and monitoring of medical countermeasures to mitigate the adverse health consequences arising from public health emergencies, specifically those involving radiological, nuclear or chemical threats. The focus of this workshop is on management of the burn injury, bringing together cross-disciplinary subject matter experts to - discuss unmet needs; underscore issues related to product development, testing and commercialization; and address opportunities to meet those challenges leveraging coordination and collaboration among strategic networks.

The purpose of this workshop is to - describe medical countermeasure requirements for burn injuries of radiological, nuclear or chemical origin in a ‘scarce resources’ environment; identify gaps in the product landscape so as to articulate a consensus-based needs assessment; discuss testing approaches and regulatory pathways; and to educate workshop attendees on the concept of medical utilization and response integration.


Date, Time and Location

This workshop will be held September 27, 2012 and September 28, 2012, at the following location:

FDA White Oak Campus
