Nurses' triage work in the emergency department : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: På akutmottagningen använder sjuksköterskor triageriktlinjer för att bedöma hur akut patienters sjukdomstillstånd är. Triage är en komplex uppgift som kräver kritiskt tänkande och medicinsk kunskap. Sjuksköterskor har en viktig roll i patienters upplevelse av att söka vård på akutmottagningen.

Syfte: Syftet var att sammanställa och belysa forskning som beskriver sjuksköterskors triagearbete på akutmottagningen.

Metod: Vald metod var litteraturöversikt med både kvalitativa- och kvantitativa artiklar. Datamaterialet bestod av nio kvalitativa och tre kvantitativa artiklar

Resultat: Vid analysen identifierades fyra teman. Dessa var Sjuksköterskors sätt att arbeta med triage, Sjuksköterskors kollegor i triagearbetet, Sjuksköterskors arbetsmiljö i triagearbetet samt Sjuksköterskors förhållningssätt till patienter i triagearbetet.

Konklusioner: Tillsammans kan sjuksköterskor stärka professionen och blir säkrare i sina triagebeslut. Sjuksköterskor behöver ha en god självkännedom. Sjuksköterskor har behov av att organisationen ger rätt förutsättningar för att god vård ska kunna bedrivas. Resultatet tyder på att mer forskning inom ämnet behövs för att utveckla sjuksköterskors roll i triagearbetet på akutmottagningen.

Abstract [en]

Background: Nurses use triage guidelines to sort patients who seek care in the emergency department. It is a complex situation which demands critical thinking and medical knowledge. Nurses play an important role in patients’ experience of seeking care in the emergency department.

Aim: To gather and identify research which describes nurses’ triage work in the emergency department.

Method: The chosen method was a literature review. The data consisted of nine qualitative and three quantitative studies.

Results: Four themes were identified through the analysis. These where Nurses’ way of working with triage, Nurses’ work related relationships in their triage work, Nurses’ work environment in their triage work and Nurses’ attitudes to patients in their triage work.

Conclusions: If nurses work together they can strengthen the profession and be more confident in their triage decisions. Nurses need to have good self-knowledge. If good health care is to be conducted, nurses need the administration to provide the right conditions. The study suggest that more research is needed, which can develop nurses’ role in the triage work in the emergency department.
