Abstract [en]

Background: Triage is the sorting of patients according to the severity of medical assessment. Triage has a long history of use in Anglo-Saxon countries but is a fairly new method in Sweden. Researchers have described the Manchester triage group method (MTS) and a literature review of the concept; working contentment and competence focusing on triage. Aim: The ambition with this study was to describe a number of triage nurses working conditions. The research questions were; working with MTS- does it bring work contentment? What kind of competence is needed? Method: Data was collected from 74 triage nurses by a questionnaire containing 37 questions and two questions provided the nurses the opportunities to describe their triage experiences. Findings: The nurses found their job interesting and stimulating, but some reported unsatisfactory work environment due to lack of education, competence, support and high work load. The informants ask for more education; to solve and discuss patient scenarios and to participate in the developing of MTS. Sixty-three percent thought MTS was a difficult method with some disadvantages. The majority found triage to be a nurse task.
