About the Event

A tool that enables Emergency Departments to:

  • Prioritize patient care requirements
  • Examine patient care processes, workload, and resource requirements relative to case mix and community need

The triage level assigned using the CTAS criteria is a mandatory data element to be used in all Canadian Hospital Emergency Departments for reporting to the Canadian Institute for Health Information

The CTAS allows ED nurses and physicians to:

  • Triage patients according the type and severity of their presenting signs and symptoms
  • Prioritizes patients when emergency department capacity has been exceeded
  • Ensure that a patient’s need for care is reassessed while in the Emergency department

The CTAS allows ED managers to:

  • Measure the case mix (volume and acuity) of patients who visit the ED
  • Determine whether the ED has an operational plan and the resources to meet patient needs
  • Assess the ED’s role within the hospital and health care region





  • CTAS - Online via ZOOM
