Deaths in hospital often occur within 24 hours of admission. Many of these deaths could be prevented if very sick children are identified soon after their arrival in the health facility, and treatment is started immediately. Therefore, a process of rapid triage for all children presenting to hospital needs to be put in place, to determine whether any emergency or priority signs are present.

This 3 1/2-day training course builds on the WHO Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment (ETAT) guidelines as contained in the "Pocket book of hospital care for children". It provides participants with the reading materials to prepare themselves for the modules taught in the course. Guidance on how to conduct the training is contained in the parallel facilitator's guide. This training course can be included in a quality improvement process which targets the whole hospital or it can start such a process.
