What is this article about?

Workers employed by National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) providers, who deliver supports to NDIS participants with a tracheostomy tube in situ, must be able to provide appropriate care. A tracheostomy is a surgical procedure that involves making an incision (stoma) into the trachea through the front of the neck. A tube is then inserted into the incision, creating an air passage that allows the patient to breathe directly through their trachea while avoiding their upper airway. This may be a temporary or permanent intervention.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
