Telephone Triage & Consultation Skills E-Learning Programme v1.3 – Modules 1, 2 & 3 (E-Learning Programme)
This online programme provides access to high quality educational tools and specialised information on how to carry out telephone triages and consultations within most clinical areas.
Whether you’re new to telephone healthcare or an experienced tele triager, our E-learning course will support you in understanding what is involved in this highly specialised skill area. Many clinicians carry out telephone triages and consultations without being appropriately trained, relying on their experience in dealing with patients face-to-face instead. However, telephone assessments are completely different and carry huge risks for the patient and the clinicians, so they require specific knowledge and skills.
The Telephone Triage Skills Online Training Programme is made up of three modules, each of which can be purchased separately. However, it is recommended that to achieve the full learning potential that all 3 modules are purchased, as each module may refer to content from the other modules.
The Telephone Triage Skills Online Training Programme modules contain learning on:
- Module 1 – Benefits, Risks and Quality Assurance (Est. learning time 30 mins)
- Module 2 – Communicating & Questioning Techniques (Est. learning time 30 mins)
- Module 3 – The Telephone Triage Model (Est.learning time 30 – 60 mins)
