CORU work examines the foundations of triage
19 May 2011
CORU has had its paper examining the foundations of triage published in Critical Care Medicine.
Working with consultant intensivists from Great Ormond Street Hospital, we developed simple analytical models to inform thinking concerning processes of triage to determine access to critical care during a pandemic. Our work focused attention on the need to be clear as to the objectives of triage and explored the nature and scale of differences that would have to exist between different patient groups for triage to have the intended benefits.
