AARC webcast: Children’s ventilator care at home

The AARC is offering a live webcast to discuss the role that respiratory therapists play when transitioning a child requiring invasive ventilation from hospital to home care.

"Successful transition for this complex population is a collaborative process involving an interdisciplinary and coordinated plan of care," the AARC says. "This presentation will discuss the role of the respiratory therapist within a dedicated discharge planning team, criteria for discharge of ventilator-dependent children, preparation and education of their families, and the challenges faced in providing a quality and efficient transition."

The webcast is scheduled for 1 p.m. Central and noon Mountain time on Tuesday, August 4. The course has been approved for 1.00 CRCE Hours. Speaker is Sherry Barnhart, RRT, RRT-NPS, AE-C, FAARC.

The webinar is free for AARC members and $15 for non-members.

Seminar objectives include:

  • Discuss interdisciplinary discharge planning and collaborative care of the ventilator-dependent child’s transition to home.
  • Understand the preparation and education required of the ventilator–dependent child’s caregivers.
  • Identify barriers to discharge from the hospital.

This course is sponsored by an unrestricted education grant from Philips.

Participants can register online on the AARC website.
