Fundamentals of Tracheostomy Care and Management


Tracheostomies are becoming increasingly commonplace both within the acute and community settings. Proper care and management of tracheostomy patients is crucial to avoid complications that can negatively impact patients' daily activities and overall quality of life. Physiotherapists play a vital role in the care of these patients and tracheostomy management is indisputably a core component of care for physiotherapists working in all settings.

This hands-on course (theory and practical) is designed to provide learners with the underpinning concepts to manage a tracheostomy patient across the care continuum- from the acute hospital setting into home and community setting. Participants will also gain the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills gained through interactive skill training sessions and thought-provoking case scenarios. They will be guided in their clinical problem-solving ability and management of these patients, thereby allowing them to consolidate the information learnt and apply in a clinical setting.
