A new Pediatric Disaster Triage course is now available from the Illinois Medical Emergency Services for Children (EMSC).
The purpose of the Pediatric Disaster Triage: Utilizing the JumpSTART Method online educational module is to provide a review of mass casualty incident (MCI) triage concepts and tools such as Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment (START) for adults and JumpSTART for children. This training allows participants to learn about these MCI concepts and tools and apply them through interactive scenarios.
It is our hope that pre-hospital, hospital professionals, primary healthcare providers, school nurses, and public health department personnel will utilize these materials to further enhance the care of children during disasters.
