Webinars are an interactive, online tool we use to facilitate discussions and education around tracheostomy care and quality improvement. The webinar may be a way for you and your institution to see what joining the GTC will mean for you! During the webinar, you will be able to type questions into a chat box during the live stream. However, more importantly, please prepare at least one question for our speakers in advance. These can be emailed to members@globaltrach.org.

We encourage as many individuals from your institution to attend our webinars as possible, so please share our webinars widely. We hope that you have explored our website and that you are working with your administration to secure approval to join the Global Tracheostomy Collaborative. If you have not already explored the GTC website, please take a moment to do so!

Please do not hesitate to contact us at members@globaltrach.org if you have any technical difficulties, questions, or concerns.
