Effective January 1, 2010, the Joint Commission requires that all healthcare workers involved in the
insertion and use of a central venous catheter (CVC) must receive annual education regarding the best
practices for CVC insertion and prevention of central-line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI).
Completion of this educational module is required for all clinicians who insert CVCs within the Orlando
Health affiliated hospitals.
Orlando Health is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide
continuing medical education for physicians. Orlando Health designates this enduring material for a
maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate
with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Physicians must complete the post-test at the conclusion of this module and achieve a passing score of
at least 80% in order to receive CME credit. CME certificates will be mailed to each physician upon
submission of the completed educational module to the Orlando Health Medical Staff Services office.
