The ‘Better at Home’ project was introduced to support transition to home for technology dependent children with complex health care needs by providing training and support to parents and unpaid carers.
Many of these children require complex medical interventions including tracheostomy, gastrostomy and children who are ventilator dependent. There were three elements to the project:
• WellChild Parent Trainer Role
• ‘Better at Home’ Simulation Suite
• eLearning materials
