Attitudes Towards and Experience of the Use of Triage Tags in Major Incidents A Mixed Method Study
Rådestad, M., Lennquist Montán, K., Rüter, A., et al. (2016). Attitudes Towards and Experience of the Use of Triage Tags in Major Incidents: A Mixed Method Study. (Abstract only.) Prehospital Disaster Medicine. 31(4):376-85.
The authors studied ambulance personnel attitude towards, and experiences of, practicing triage tagging during day-to-day management of trauma patients, as well as in major incidents (MIs), using questionnaires and focus groups. They found that, although ambulance personnel accept the value of using triage tags, they will likely not use them during MIs because they don’t have much experience with them during day-to-day operations or through exercises.
