Thank you for visiting the PPLLTV competency document section. As a group we are really keen to gather feedback on the documents from both the perspective of the healthcare professionals using the document as a trainer, as well as from the parent and carer who has been trained against the relevant competency document. This would allow us to ensure the competency documents are fit for purpose and having the intended impact which is to create a standard approach to competency training. We would be very grateful if you would share the below QR codes where one code is to gather feedback from the trainer perspective and the second code if you could share with your parent/carer so we can gather their feedback. Many thanks from the PPLLTV group.

The tracheostomy competencies and guidance are in one document with many resources included kindly provided by Great Ormond Street Hospital. Some of the tracheostomy sections may not be relevant to your parent or carer, so these have been added to the later part of the document.

There are clearly outlined core competences that must be achieved as a minimum in the beginning of the document.
