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?

TEC Inten­sive deliv­ers the same con­tent from our tra­di­tion­al face-to-face course but allows you to engage from the com­fort of home or work, immerse your­self in the con­tent, and engage with oth­er prac­ti­tion­ers via our online dis­cus­sion boards.

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 Zoom work­shop for the Triage Emer­gency Care Inten­sive online course is designed to be com­plet­ed in one day. The course deliv­ers the same con­tent as our tra­di­tion­al cours­es using a com­bi­na­tion of:

  • Five self-direct­ed online learn­ing mod­ules includ­ing case sce­nar­ios, quizzes and activities
  • Online dis­cus­sion boards

Please note that the above com­po­nents of the course must be com­plet­ed to receive the TEC cer­tifi­cate, includ­ing 100% atten­dance at the one-day live online Zoom work­shop.
