In-Depth Toxicological Effects Analysis
This section provides guidance on how to perform an in-depth toxicological effects analysis. This is the process ATSDR uses to examine human exposure to a contaminant to determine if the exposure may cause health problems.
Refer to ATSDR’s Public Health Assessment Training (PHAT) course. ATSDR’s Tox Evaluation Mini-Module, part of Module 7, will help you learn more about toxicological effects evaluations, see case study examples, and perform case exercises.
ATSDR’s Public Health Assessment Site Tool (PHAST) is a multi-purpose resource that ATSDR recommends health assessors use when preforming the PHA process. Use the PHAST CVs & Health Guidelines Module to find toxicological data on contaminants at your sites. Health assessors and those involved in the PHA process can gain access by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
