TH32  Radiation Protection: Sustainable Gain in Efficiencies, Innovation and Collaboration during Times of Declining Resources

The purpose and learning objectives of this session are to present sustainable gains in efficiencies from regulatory, industry, national laboratory, and international views of health physics issues. The focus areas include efficiencies in the regulatory framework, such as collaboration on computer codes, innovation in advanced reactors, and the forward looking strategies of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements and the NRC’s international counterparts. The take-away message is that there are current initiatives in radiation protection that provide a programmatic overview of how to collaborate, innovate, and transform the health physics field in order to alleviate the resource issues that exist.
