Evolving Need for Alternative Triage Management in Public Health Emergencies: A Hurricane Katrina Case Study

Klein, K., Pepe, P., Burkle, F., et al. (2008). Evolving Need for Alternative Triage Management in Public Health Emergencies: A Hurricane Katrina Case Study. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 2(Suppl 1):S40-4.

The authors explain how post-Katrina “life-and-death triage scenarios” contribute to the need for the “establishment of disaster-specific, consensus-based, public health emergency-related triage protocols-developed with ethical and legal expertise and a renewed focus on multidimensional, multifactorial matrix decision-making processes.”
