ABSTRACT

Model Uniform Core Criteria for Mass Casualty Incident Triage: Addendum to the Paramedic Instructional Guidelines   [open pdf - 851KB]

From the Background: "The MUCC [Model Uniform Core Criteria] criteria are provided here as background knowledge for instructors. MUCC was created to address the issues inherent in mass casualty incidents that cross jurisdictional lines, where responders may be using different triage systems. As Lerner et al. (2011) write, 'for operational simplicity, communication interoperability, and clinical efficiency, it is preferable for all of the responders at a given incident to use the same triage system, or at the very least operate from some common elements.'"
