Boise - Central Line Testing (Non-Distance)

Offered specifically at the WWAMI training site at Boise VA Medical Center, the course is designed for healthcare providers that place central venous catheters; this course teaches the basic principles and techniques for placing a central venous line into a patient. Learners first complete an E-Learning cognitive training module and training with a manikin before attending the testing session. At each skills session, learners review situations in which a central line would be used, are instructed in ultrasound use and finally, practice central line placement using a task-training manikin.
