The effect of triage systems for patients in emergency and accident departments - Protocol for brief language summaries of systematic reviews - project description
The Health Services aim to provide adequate and efficient health services at all levels and for everyone. Accident and Emergency Departments (A&E) receive patients in acute need of care. The patient is triaged and monitored according to his/her immediate needs.
This is a protocol for plain language summaries of systematic reviews that aim to determine and summarise the effect of triage systems in A&E departments on patient, organisational, societal and employee outcomes.
We will carry out a systematic search for systematic reviews. The systematic review(s) that are most updated and has lowest risk of bias will be selected. The systematic reviews will be presented in a brief summaries containing results looking at morbidity, mortality, time to diagnoses at the A&E, time to treatment at the A&E, patient satisfaction, costs, as well as employee job satisfaction and absences due to illness. Selection of systematic reviews, critical appraisal, and grading of the evidence will be done by two researchers independently.
