The Central Line Placement Skills course follows the 2010 Central Venous Access Device Guidelines for central venous catheter insertion for HHC, which includes the use of the central line bundle kit, aseptic protocol and education as a means of increasing patient safety and reducing infection. Delivery is facilitated through the use of active, cooperative-based instruction that includes the use of central line part-task simulation trainers and ultrasound machines in central line placement. The course also includes training in subclavian line placement.
This course does not certify personnel or grant privilege to place a central line, nor is this course a substitute for local supervised competency assessment.
