Children’s Long Term Ventilation Pathways

Long Term Ventilation (LTV) Pathway

The Hospital to Home: Children’s Long Term Ventilation pathway is designed to enable all professionals around the patient to work in harmony.

This pathway implements a standardised approach and process allowing the ability to track key decisions and actions of the clinical teams. The LTV Pathway has reduced the administrative burden for clinical teams which in turn has improved patient and family experiences by facilitating safe and timely hospital discharge.

Long Term Ventilated Children are a highly complex population requiring comprehensive discharge planning.The LTV pathway and Hospital to Home Service has the ability to share best practice and enables better performance of the discharge process across networks and regions.
