Description

This competency-based workshop will prepare the community health-care provider with the knowledge and skills to care for children requiring invasive ventilation via a tracheostomy, non-invasive ventilation (e.g. BiPAP) and mechanical in-exsufflation (e.g. Cough Assist). Participants will have the opportunity to practice skills and participate in simulated home visits of a child requiring this medical technology. This workshops runs for a full day (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

Pre-requisites:  Participants will be prompted to show proof of prior training caring for a child with a tracheostomy when registering for this workshop. Completion of the Connected Care Paediatric Tracheostomy module is required if no prior training has been completed.   Registered participants are required to complete the pre-learning package prior to attending the workshop in order to fully participate in the learning activities planned throughout the day.
