IPCS INTOX is an essential tool for poison centres and related units concerned with preventing, recording, evaluation, diagnosing, treating and reporting on chemical emergencies.
The IPCS INTOX programme
provides four capabilities in one.
It is a databank of consolidated, authoritative information on toxic agents and the management of toxic exposures; an information management tool for poison centres and others dealing with toxic exposures; the gateway to a global electronic network of poison centres and other users of the package;
and, it provides a forum for collaboration between experts
and those responding to emergencies concerning toxic exposures.
