Partners Module Looks at Central Venous Access Devices and Bacteremia

The Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Program recently launched a new online learning activity entitled, “Bacteremia: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.”

The target audience includes nurses in the U.S. hemophilia treatment center (HTC) network who treat pediatric patients implanted with central venous access devices (CVADs). It is not unusual for these patients to present with bacteria in their blood at some juncture. This activity could also be of interest to other members of an HTC comprehensive care team who are interested in learning more about the identification and management of CVAD-related bacteremia.

This activity is provided for 0.75 contact hours under American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) criteria.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education has been awarded Accreditation with Distinction, the highest recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Accreditation Program. This distinction is valid through 2020.

Established in 1996, the Partners Program promotes excellence in care through education created by and for the federally recognized HTC Network and providers from a variety of disciplines that serve patients with bleeding and other coagulation disorders. The program is a collaborative initiative of the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center, NHF and the Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan. Funding to support the Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Program is provided through an unrestricted educational grant from Shire.
