Although there are multiple existing strategies for the triage of children in disasters, there is no tested curriculum for teaching pediatric disaster triage, nor has there been much comparison of triage strategy efficacy. The goals of this project were to (1) develop a generalizable pediatric disaster triage curriculum for prehospital professionals; and (2) compare the efficacy of existing triage strategies.
