When taking your child home it is important that you feel confident that you are able to look after their medical needs safely. The staff in the hospital will support you in learning how to use the specialist equipment that your child requires at the bedside. At the same time staff in the community will also meet your child and work alongside you in the hospital in preparation for supporting you once at home.
The Childrens Long Term Ventilation Service can also support your learning through structured face to face teaching tailored to you and your family and also through online learning. Your key worker will help to coordinate these learning activities for you. Please contact your key worker to discuss your learning further.
