MAJA Parent/Children Training Concept

Ambulant intensive care for children: the reality

The emotional pressure on families with children who need intensive care is very high. For a happy childhood a high performance standard in intensive care as well as a good working family life is compulsory.

The ambulant intensive care for children expects high qualification of the employees which is more cost intensive compared to the care of adults. Geographically ther are two monitorings: In rural areas there are only few ambulant nursing services especially for children. In the urban area there are skilled employees but outnumbered. Parents who want to get more involved in their children’s care often fail due to high quality standards in care.

The own child finally at hom

A way out of this problem is the training of parents in intensive care of their children. In Duisburg the Hirschel Pflegedienste offer parents and children the MAJA training concept. Within 4 to 8 weeks of training they learn to carry out their children’s care independently. Goals are:




1. Increased autonomy and privacy for parents

2. Counteracting the shortage of qualified nurses

3. Reducing expenditures for intensive care

Training structure

The training takes place separately or in groups and considers individual requirements. Parents learn how to carry out specific care and dealing with medical devices. Highly qualified staff supervises the practical implementation.

MAJA training concept

A 24/7 care by highly qualified nurses is guaranteed. After successful training the MAJA paediatric nursing care looks after the families subsequently when they go back to their homes. Alternatively there is a transition to another paediatric nursing care.
