AYUSO RAYA, María Candelaria; PEREZ LOPEZ, Nieves; SIMARRO HERRAEZ, María José  e  ESCOBAR RABADAN, Francisco. Evaluation of a primary care nursing emergencies triage project. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.3, pp.144-151. ISSN 2386-8201.

Objective: To ascertain the evaluation of nurses and nursing students on organisational changes for the establishment of a triage system for primary care emergencies. Design: Focus group qualitative study. Location: Primary Care. Participants: Primary health care nurses and third year nursing students. Method: Two groups were formed, one of seven nurses from city, rural and SUAP healthcare centres and a second group made up of five third year nursing students. A video recording was made of the meetings and later a process of analysis and synthesis of the information was carried out. Results: There was agreement between both groups on the feasibility of this task and, in general, they considered themselves sufficiently qualified to perform it. Likewise, importance was given to the fact that responsibility for deciding who should attend to a patient needing immediate care, and when, should not fall on the administrative area. In the nursing group, special emphasis was placed on the fact that this project would not be viable with current workloads and, for this reason, they put forward the need to increase the workforce or to bring in organisational changes. The students showed interest in taking on this kind of task, although they would wish for greater specific training in their academic curriculum. They considered definition of tasks and regulation of activities to be fundamental. Conclusions: Qualified nurses at work in primary care and nursing students nearing the end of their training agree on the feasibility of implementing a triage system for patients requiring immediate attention at a healthcare centre.
