Clinical Support and Education

The Atos Clinical Education team can support and collaborate on clinical training requirements on laryngectomy and tracheostomy with evidence-based practice, from beginner to advanced level. Our clinical educators offer a range of training including 1-1 clinical support, webinars, engage and learn sessions or bespoke in-house training.

Our clinical training sessions are flexible and can be tailored around you or your colleagues’ ability, understanding and schedule. You can choose where and how you would like to receive your training either in hospital, an external venue or online, making it convenient for you.

Our experienced team of speech and language therapists and respiratory physiotherapists have come from a diverse range of clinical sectors. Our educators are regulated by professional bodies and keep up to date with the latest practices, research, and clinical evidence.

Engage and Learn

Our Engage and Learn training sessions cover a range of subjects including laryngectomy, tracheostomy, and paediatric tracheostomy care, which can be customised to support your learning needs.

These sessions can be scheduled to suit your busy working day and are all offered virtually or face to face, so you can participate from your office or home. Any number of these subjects can be requested and can be spread out or condensed over time to suit your service needs.

What to expect from an Engage and Learn:

• Short 1-to-2-hour sessions
• Small or large groups, just let us know your requirements
• There may be hands-on learning with products, but we’ll organise this with you before the session
• And finally, bring your coffee and questions


There are a wide variety of online clinical webinars, workshops, and global panel discussions available. These platforms provide an opportunity to collaborate with a diverse range of experts from across the globe who represent a range of specialist viewpoints and skill sets. You will have the chance to interact with the experts and network with clinicians that may not be from your local area.

Upcoming events will be communicated via email, and they are often recorded for those who are interested but unable to attend.
