Emergency Triage Assessment. This presentation outlines the use of mental health triage scales in Australia with a particular focus on The Australasian Triage Scale and why it doesn’t work for clients with mental illness. These issues are then contextualised through an examination of Mental Health services in the ED and the implication for clients with a mental illness presenting to Australian emergency departments.
