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.
