About this course
  • Are you required to effec­tive­ly and effi­cient­ly assess and triage emer­gency patients and pri­ma­ry pre­sen­ta­tions in your work?
  • Do you need to enhance your triage skills?
  • Are you famil­iar with the Aus­tralasian Triage Scale and Emer­gency Triage Edu­ca­tion Kit?

The CRANAplus Triage Emer­gency Care course (TEC) is based on the Emer­gency Triage Edu­ca­tion Kit (ETEK) with a focus on appli­ca­tion for rur­al, remote and iso­lat­ed set­tings. The course upskills the rur­al triage prac­ti­tion­er to con­fi­dent­ly assess patients and apply the Aus­tralasian Triage Scale to allo­cate an appro­pri­ate triage category.

Who is this course for?

The course is designed to meet the learn­ing needs of the remote and rur­al health work­force, espe­cial­ly nurs­es and rur­al gen­er­al prac­ti­tion­ers who may be required to per­form triage.

If you have any queries about the course or its rel­e­vance to your prac­tice, sub­mit an enquiry here.

The CRANAplus Triage Course meets WACHS pol­i­cy require­ments for Triage train­ing and assess­ment and suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pants will receive RPL status.

Cater­ing information

Giv­en the remote loca­tion of many of our cours­es, we are some­times restrict­ed to Veg­e­tar­i­an and Gluten Free dietary options. While we always sup­ply fresh food and fruit, par­tic­u­lar foods may not be eas­i­ly accessed in remote areas. Should you have quite spe­cif­ic restric­tions we encour­age you to bring some basics and then pick and choose from the fresh food offered on the day. You should also inform us of any aller­gies you may have so we can advise the cater­er and be aware of the situation.
