Pre-hospital Triage Performance After Standardized Trauma Courses

Lampi, M., Junker, J., Berggren, P., et al. (2017). Pre-hospital Triage Performance After Standardized Trauma Courses. Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation, and Emergency Medicine. 25(1):53.
The authors compared triage skills (decision-making; prioritization of 15 hypothetical casualties involved in a bus crash; and prioritization for evacuation) among Swedish Advanced Trauma Life Support and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support course participants before and after their respective trainings. The only improvement in triage skills observed through the post-test was for Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support participants who had previously participated in real mass casualty incidents (MCIs), or MCI exercises, suggesting the need for changes to these standardized courses.
