New survey – TechChild Research Study

We invite you to take part in this international study exploring the factors that influence the initiation of invasive long-term ventilation (LTV) via tracheostomy as an example of technology dependence.

The survey is open to all clinical professionals (e.g. medical doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dieticians, pharmacists, respiratory therapists and members of the MDTs) with experience of working with children initiated on LTV to participate. This study is important as it aims to identify the greatest influences on the initiation of invasive LTV and to explore the meaning of this in the context of contrasting health, legal, economic and political systems.
