This program provides participants with an understanding of how human health risk analysis is done, how it is interpreted, and how it influences regulatory decision making. Participants learn how to apply the science behind risk-based decision making, examine complex problems involving chemicals, radiation, and other hazards in the environment, discuss emerging analytic approaches, and review important issues with leaders in the field. Learning Objectives: - Examine current and emerging methods for quantifying risks - Evaluate exposure assessment protocols - Differentiate between key assumptions and uncertainties in non-cancer and cancer dose-response models - Implement probabilistic methods in uncertainty analysis and risk assessment - Identify key factors that influence risk perception and communication - Evaluate alternative approaches for valuation of environmental health risk outcomes - Understand the role of risk information in benefit-cost analysis and risk management
