Die AG ETAT (Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment) Training entstand 2018 auf Initiative von drei Absolventinnen unseres TropPaedKurses. Sie dient dem Erfahrungsaustausch zum Thema Triage und der Organisation von ETAT+ Kursen in Deutschland.


Was sind ETAT und ETAT+?

ETAT und ETAT+ sind in ressourcen-limitierten Ländern Afrikas entwickelte Konzepte zur Triagierung kranker Kinder in primären Gesundheitseinrichtungen. Sie haben einen nachweislichen Effekt auf die Senkung der Mortalität und sind einsetzbar in Gesundheitseinrichtungen jedes Levels.

Vielerorts bildet ETAT den Grundpfeiler der Entscheidungsfindung beim Erstkontakt mit einem Patienten, der teilweise nicht zwingend durch medizinisches Personal erfolgt.

ETAT Leitlinen sind speziell an häufige Probleme in der pädiatrischen Basisnotfallversorgung von Kindern in ressourcen-limitierten Einrichtungen angepasst. Die Leitlinien identifizieren auf strukturierte und verständliche Art und Weise Kinder mit akut lebensbedrohlichen Zuständen und präsentieren einfache, aber klare, Leitlinien zur Versorgung dieser.

We`re happy to announce that we could organize our second ETAT+ Instructor Course despite several challenges. Finally, we reached out to hold a three days couse in Hamburg with an international group of participants as well as instructors from August 27th – 29th 2021. After a first pilot course in 2019, which we conducted in Hannover with great support from the UK ETAT team, we planned to perform a course by a mixed instructor team including the German ETAT+ team, UK ETAT team as well as very experienced instructors from the ERC and American heart association (EPALS trainer from Germany, Switzerland as well as the Netherlands).

The goal of the ETAT+ Instructor Course is to teach and enable former ETAT+ course participants who showed instructor potential the possibility to get a deeper insight into adult learning and how to perform it efficiently. The foundation of this instructor course were the teaching methods from the European resuscitation council (ERC) and the course content from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) in UK. A special part of the agenda were group discussions about challenges and important points related to implementing trainings in low resource settings and other cultures. With this background information it should be possible to teach ETAT+ (as well as other simulation trainings) in different countries and cultures even more effectively.

We were lucky that our international instructor team could travel over three country borders from UK, Germany and Switzerland despite the Sars-Cov-2-pandemic restrictions. And even our participants came from different European countries like the Netherlands, Ukraine and Germany. The course was held in the Wilhelmsstift Hospital in Hamburg with great support from the local team.

The three day training was very intense including a lot of practical trainings with personal feedback and room for improvement due to good repetition. It was wonderful to see the fast progress in teaching skills from day to day. All participants enjoyed the good atmosphere, the chance to train under supervision of experienced trainers as well as exchanging ideas with one another.

In total, this course was a great success and we had a fantastic time all together where everyone could benefit from another! This is great networking! This is the future of great instructors who can spread the word of ETAT around the globe!

Thanks to everyone who took part by organisation, participation and teaching!

We are grateful for having been sponsored by the

We did it! The fourth ETAT+ Germany course was conducted at the hospital „Wilhelmsstift“ in Hamburg October 23rd-25th 2020.  Luckily we were able to do so –  even under COVID-19-pandemic circumstances.

It was wonderful to teach an enthusiastic and energetic group of participants. Our hands-on-course was done under strict hygiene restrictions: We kept distance, washed hands regularly, wore masks at all times, cleaned our materials after each session and ventilated the room almost continously. This meant that we all wore scarfs and wooly hats while rescucitating our dolls.

It is great to see how important the ETAT+ content is for everyone attending the course, especially the participants, who had plans to work abroad straight after the course.

Quick facts:

  • 15 enthusiastic international participants (Germany, Austria, Switzerland)
  • 6 energetic, motivated instructors
  • 1 well-prepared, calm course director
  • 3 days of hands-on, thrilling simulation training
  • interactive video-lectures from instructors from the UK & the south of Germany
  • Video-greetings from different ETAT+ instructors around the globe

This course was pragmatic, energetic, safe & so much fun! We hope to continue soon to spread the word of ETAT+ and get to know even more interesting people who want to improve international child health!

Thanks to everyone who made this course possible!
