Learning Objectives: - Examine current and emerging methods for quantifying risks - Evaluate exposure assessment protocols - Differentiate between key assumptions and uncertainties in non-cancer and cancer dose-response models - Implement probabilistic methods in uncertainty analysis and risk assessment - Identify key factors that influence risk perception and communication - Evaluate alternative approaches for valuation of environmental health risk outcomes - Understand the role of risk information in benefit-cost analysis and risk management
