This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Awareness of the Poison Control Center," by Murray Frost.
Poison control centers perform several health-care functions. In addition to providing poisoning treatment facilities, they play a vital role in providing information to individuals and health professionals for treating poisoning victims. They play a preventative role by providing professional and public educational programs, and they also serve an advocacy role.
