Recent Testimonial: “On behalf of our Regional Nurses, I’d like to thank you for your presentation on Telephone Triage. The acronyms were clear and concise and should definitely assist the nurses in being thorough in data gathering. The evaluations completed by the nurses in attendance show that the information provided was exactly what they needed. I’m optimistic that there will be a positive impact on their practice” D.W.G., RN, MSN, State Health Agency

Thoughts from Thought Leaders
My new two new favorite books: The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age, by Robert Wachter, MD, and The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande, MD. Both books speak to quality and safety in healthcare with implications for telephone triage safety. The extraordinary challenge of making good decisions in telephone triage requires software that reduces human error and supports metacognition (knowing when & how to use certain strategies for solving a problem).
