Tracheostomy and Speech Pathology (TASP) Course is organized by Clinical Skills Development Service (CSDS) and will be held on Sep 06, 2019 at Clinical Skills Development Service, Herston, Queensland, Australia.
Target audience :
Speech pathologists (including metropolitan, regional, rural and remote) with limited practical experience in working with the adult patient with a tracheostomy. The workshop is aimed at an introductory level.
Course Description :
The simulation-based workshop will provide evidence-based hands-on training in basic speech pathology management of adult patients with a tracheostomy. The learning environment uses realistic clinical scenarios and simulated human manikins in a small group environment to develop core practical skills for speech pathologists working with this population. It allows for the development of confidence in tracheostomy management for the clinician prior to live patient contact.
Build skill and confidence in managing adult patients. Learn the tracheostomy theory basics including:
• Types and styles of tubes
• Cuff status and deflation
• Oxygen saturation levels and respiratory status
• Occlusion, capping or valving.
Then develop your skills in a realistic clinical environment through the use of scenarios and simulated manikins with our clinical experts on hand to offer advice and support.
1-2 years of dysphagia experience is preferable. Registrations close 4 weeks prior to allow participants to complete pre-course reading requirements and pre-quiz.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
