"Telephone Triage Protocols" by Sheila Wheeler provide the maximum decision support that telenurses need in their practice. The age-based volumes (Adult and Infant/Child) serve as a comprehensive triage and advice tool.
Between 1998 and 2003, the protocols were updated annually with substantive revisions of the flow and design.
The 2003 format is more streamlined, user friendly, while still
providing the depth of information which provides users support in the
uncertain and difficult work of telephone triage.

The recent revisions enhance the timeliness of software development or translations. These protocols exceed the following measures of excellence and uniqueness:
- Track Record: The product is time tested -- and has been on
the market since 1995. It is currently used in over 500 facilities.
Experts and leaders in the field endorse it.
- Liability: Since 1994, these protocols have never been involved in patient harm or death due to flaws, errors, or omissions.
