Triage of the Emergency Patient
“First impressions” are formed in the first three seconds of new situation. Visual cues such as demeanour, body language, and grooming are used to evaluate a person. What many don’t realize is that we can use these same skills to evaluate and triage emergency patients. Triage is an art form, and this lecture will give you the tools you need to recognize and classify patients into a triage scale, to ensure they are seen on a priority basis.
This webinar will be a narrated powerpoint, with lots of sound and videos to help make points! You will need a stable and fast internet connection. The webinar will use Goto Webinar which offers apps for android and iOS devices in addition to its web app.
