Vivek Balasubramaniam,

Congratulations to Vivek Balasubramaniam, MD, and Kim Whitmore, PhD, RN (Nursing), on receipt of ~$48,000 in funding via the UW Foundation for their project, "eHomeCare - an innovative health care delivery support system for homecare nurses". This project aims to increase access to an evidence-based, nursing-driven educational program by leveraging a web-based, mobile training platform to develop eHomeCare. This innovative health care delivery support system will provide homecare nurses with comprehensive information about the care of children with a tracheostomy and/or ventilator that can be used as an initial training, annual review, as well as an on-going resource to support critical thinking in the home and community setting.
