Clinical Trial Summary

This project will evaluate a new course developed for nurses that provide care to children with breathing technology including breathing tubes and home breathing machines. The investigators plan to assess the nurses' knowledge and comfort of their ability to care for these medical technologies prior to the course as well as their ability to retain their knowledge 6 weeks and 6 months after course completion.

Clinical Trial Description

A structured program evaluation considering a hierarchy of outcomes is essential to determine whether the tracheostomy module is associated with improved knowledge and skills for CHPs (community health providers). This investigators proposed study is guided by the evaluation of knowledge acquisition and self-efficacy as a theoretical framework 24. CHPs' sense of self-efficacy or perceived capability in caring for this population is important to foster to potentially mitigate significant morbidity and mortality, while ultimately striving for safe, high-quality clinical care for these medically complex children. ;
