Improving Tracheostomy Care
The ITC project completed data collection at the end of January 2019. The results were analysed by researchers with expertise in statistical analysis, quality improvement, change methods, normalisation process theory and tracheostomy care. The economic evaluation was provided independently by academics at the University of East Anglia.
Research papers were published in the Spring of 2020 with keynote presentations at the World Congress of Intensive Care in Melbourne in October 2019, and the 5th International Tracheostomy Symposium, also in Melbourne in the Autumn of 2020.
