Jetten, W., Seesink, J., and Klimek, M. (2022). Prehospital Triage by Lay Person First Responders: A Scoping Review and Proposal for a new Prehospital Triage Tool. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 16(3):1242-1252.
The authors included four articles in a scoping review to understand how to train lay person first responders (i.e., people with no health care experience) to triage and begin care for patients in a mass casualty incident. The authors developed a tool for lay people to improve disaster preparedness and community resilience.
