About our Training 

Tracheostomy Awareness Course 

This tracheostomy training course is designed for Nurses, Carers, Allied Healthcare Professionals and even Relatives. Significantly, it aims to familiarize them with different types of tubes, the reasons for tracheostomy procedures, and importantly, educating them on the proper and necessary care and management of the tracheostomy site and tube. Furthermore, by using multiple manikins and suction machines for active hands-on practice, and simulated assessments of competencies, it reportedly increases participants' confidence in their ability to care safely for clients with a tracheostomy. Therefore, making it an essential course for any staff or relative responsible for the care of individuals with a tracheostomy. 
 
Importantly, our tracheostomy course is delivered by practising and experienced high-dependency nurses with many years of teaching and complex care nursing experience. Consequently, this approach ensures that we provide you with the right experienced practitioner to teach this course. 
 
 
This course is run regularly as an open course at our training venue in Morden, South London, thereby making it suitable for individuals or smaller groups to book onto. Or can be run at your own venue. Check out our course dates for availability.
