Pelaccia, T., Delplancq, H., Triby, E., et al. (2009). Can Teaching Methods Based on Pattern Recognition Skill Development Optimise Triage in Mass-Casualty Incidents? (Abstract only.) Emergency Medicine Journal. 26(12):899-902.
Teaching methods based on pattern recognition skill development were used to train a group of medical and nursing students to perform triage. A similar group of medical and nursing students was trained using a standardized curriculum. The group taught pattern recognition skills development performed triage more accurately, with a lower overtriage rate than the other group.
