Triage as an organisational skill is invaluable, not only to the emergent patient, but also to all aspects of critical care nursing with high volumes of patients. The lecturer believes that having the ability to seamlessly triage multiple emergency patients is a transferrable skill that will benefit the entire veterinary team.

Topics covered include:

  • Phone Triage
  • Preparing the Clinic
  • Triage scoring systems
  • How to perform a great clinical exam
  • Brief overview of the use of POCUS as part of the triage
  • Nursing interventions

By the end of this webinar you will have:

  • A clearer understanding of how to triage patients both on the phone and in the clinic
  • A better understanding of how to prepare the clinic for various scenarios
  • Critical appraisal of the clinical exam• Improved confidence using the ultrasound as an extension of the clinical exam
  • A better understanding of ways in which we can help our patients during the triage process, and a brief overview of how we can apply this to all our nursing endeavours!
