We have been working with the NTSP to
deliver tracheostomy training to all multidisciplinary staff who might
encounter patients with tracheostomies and laryngectomies.
We are currently focusing on providing training and resources to
equip staff to teach tracheostomy safety courses in their own
institutions. Our ‘Train the Trainer’ Courses demonstrate the content
and resources of our provider course alongside specific educational
strategies to help candidates deliver effective teaching at their own
institutions. Expert medical educators work alongside experienced ALSG
instructors to demonstrate skills and techniques used in ALSG Generic
Instructor Courses, adapted to delivering tracheostomy course content.
Candidates will be exposed to guided practice of small and large group
facilitation of discussions and presentations, low fidelity emergency
scenario simulation and performance of specific tracheostomy-related
skills. There is some pre-course reading and e-learning and we ask
candidates to prepare material to practice delivering in the day, with
Our aim is to ensure that tracheostomy education is provided to a
high standard by training and facilitating effective teaching, wherever
it is needed.
