Some children require a tracheostomy to help with their breathing. The Alberta Children's Hospital (ACH) Tracheostomy and Ventilator Education Program supports families and caregivers to develop the knowledge and skills needed to safely care for a child with a tracheostomy in the community. This page is intended as a resource for families and caregivers in the program.
For more information about the program please contact Juanita Davis, Pediatric Trach Coordinator at 403-955-2213 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
