Our winter meeting will offer the PDC “Improving Exposure Data Interpretation and Professional Judgment." This PDC is consistently rated in the top 10 at the AIHCE, and is taught by two national experts in the field. The GLS offering is at a cost well below the conference rate, and throw in lunch, snacks, a notebook, and more coffee than you should ever drink---its a deal you can't afford to miss.
Course Content: An increased understanding of human decision-making processes and advances in statistical tools offer exciting opportunities for improving the accuracy, efficiency, and transparency of our exposure judgments. These tools can be used to formally combine our professional judgment regarding a particular exposure and its uncertainty along with the statistical analysis of current exposure data. The approach holds promise for expressing the output of exposure assessments in a manner that is much more easily understood and communicated than the output from more traditional approaches. Best of all, the decision analysis approach formalizes traditional exposure assessment processes already used by industrial hygienists today.
