Description

In international medicine, triage has long been thought of as the exclusive domain of the emergency department. However, the worldwide shift to earlier discharge of patients, minimising readmission rates, and reducing the use of an overburdened health care system is changing the face and function of triage.

We recognise that the way in which triage is used will ultimately be dependent upon the context; whether it be within an Emergency Department, a country hospital, doctor’s clinic, or via the telephone.

Our course introduces the nurse to the basic concepts of triage using the Emergency Triage Education Kit (ETEK), the foundation guide for triage practice in Australia.

Objectives

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the principal aims of triage.
- Define the term "urgency" in the context of triage assessment.
- Describe the role and responsibilities of the triage nurse.
- Outline the key components that make the triage process effective.
- Differentiate between triage decisions and medical diagnosis.
- Nominate essential requirements for effective triage of children.
- Identify unique physiological factors of children and their significance in the triage process.
- Allocate appropriate categories to case scenarios and discuss rationale for decisions made.
