* START: Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment Disaster triage is a method of quickly identifying victims who have life-threatening injuries and who also have the best chance of survival. Identification of such victims serves to direct other rescuers and health care providers to these patients first when they arrive on the scene. This interactive session will enhance the learners skill and knowledge to assess children in given patient scenarios.
