Course Description:

This one day course is focused on increasing Emergency Nurses knowledge of adult triage.

Target: Emergency nurses who perform triage of patients in either rural or urban facilities.

‚ÄčThe Canadian Triage & Acuity Scale (CTAS) is a tool that enables Emergency Departments (ED) to:

  • ‚ÄčPrioritize patient care requirements
  • Examine patient care processes, workload, and resource requirements relative to case mix and community needs

The CTAS allows ED nurses and physicians to:

  • Triage patients according the type and severity of their presenting signs and symptoms
  • Ensure that the sickest patients are seen first when ED capacity has been exceeded due to visit rates or reduced access to other services
  • Ensure that a patient's need for care is reassessed while in the ED

The CTAS allows ED managers to:

  • Measure the case mix (volume and acuity) of patients who visit the ED
  • Determine whether the ED has an operational plan and the resources to meet patient needs
  • Assess the ED's role within the hospital and health care region

This course discussed the goals of triage; the role and responsibilities of the triage nurse; describes the CTAS process; as well as the five levels of triage; and provided an opportunity to apply this knowledge to numerous case studies to increase the reliability and validity.

Price: $195.00
