The resources and continuing education opportunities available for homecare nurses caring for children who are tracheostomy/ventilator dependent are limited, inaccessible, and outdated, especially in rural areas. To promote the health of these children, eHomecare aims to provide access to a comprehensive, evidence-based, online nursing training programthat aims to provide homecare nurses with the knowledge and access to accurate information regarding care techniques for children with tracheostomies and/or ventilators.
