Hospital-based education programs for home respiratory care equipment using learner-centered, competency-based teaching methods thoroughly prepares caregivers of technology-dependent children.

Tracheostomy care in leading pediatric hospitals is both multi-disciplinary and comprehensive, including generalized care protocols and thorough family training programs. This level of care is more difficult in resource-limited  settings lacking developed healthcare infrastructure.

The 2014 NCEPOD report illustrated a complication rate of 25.2% in a study of over 2,500 tracheostomy patients. Good quality care requires a team-based integrated practice from multiple healthcare professionals. The benefits of medical teaching using webinar software are becoming increasingly realised. Webinars are an accessible tool and are therefore uniquely placed to deliver interprofessional education.
