Although sound evidence regarding the role of the registered nurse in the practice of telephone triage has existed in the literature for well over a decade, clinical practice has not kept up, often resulting in unsafe care. This session identifies practice gaps and present strategies for effectively bringing clinical practice into line with the evidence.
