The resulting nursing care of the grounds of urgency as well as conducting advanced triage requires action by a nurse practitioner. The introduction of obstetric triage in CSPT, while improving responsiveness to the needs of users, establishes uniform criteria and consistent scientific adequate attention to the needs of the user has about their demand for care.
