The committee recognizes that some of its recommendations will be difficult to implement in a short time. Additional information and improved approaches for addressing radiation risk and fallout doses may change compensation programs, medical screening, screening for compensation, and related education and outreach programs. The task of addressing those issues has been difficult, but the committee accepted the challenge because of the critical need for decisions regarding the future of RECA and RESEP.
