Industry Expert, Sheila Wheeler and other researchers have found that the introduction of electronic guidelines have not significantly reduced decision making errors. User unfriendly guidelines may actually contribute to errors leading to under referrals and delays in care. Training for software operation does not replace clinical training: thorough assessments, skills in estimating urgency, ruling out urgent symptoms, interpreting patient responses, critical thinking, prioritizing, pattern recognition, and clinical decision making.
Ms. Wheeler can customize any course to your requirements, or provide training programs as described. To be more economical, you can join with other local healthcare facilities or create your own community-based offering. The core course: “The Fine Art of Telephone Triage” (8 hours) is essential.
