Triage of preg. wo. in the ER:eval. of a triage decision aid

Postby caryn » Mon Mar 19, 2012 09:49 am

The introduction of triage education and condition-specific decision aids for triage markedly improved triage assessment and documentation. The application of algorithms may reduce clinical risk resulting from suboptimal triage of pregnant women presenting to [emergency departments].

Education works - not only do we need to know what to say to them, but in triage the care providers need to know what to listen for us to say.
