TRAMS: Excellence in Tracheostomy Care

Austin TRAMS

Community Training Program

Prior to leaving hospital, a person with a tracheostomy and their carers must be adequately equipped with the appropriate knowledge, skills, equipment and care plan to ensure they can be safely cared for in the community.
The TRAMS community tracheostomy discharge and training program consists of a comprehensive two week education and training program prior to discharge. The program is completed by the patient and a core group of carers prior to discharge until the patient is adequately prepared for discharge.
