Interactive online learning for ultrasound-guided central venous catheter insertion

The CVC training module increased declarative knowledge acquisition and retention. No significant difference in simulated CVC performance was found over the three time points” Boet et al (2017).

Abstract:

Evidence has demonstrated that the use of dynamic ultrasound guidance (USG) for central venous catheter (CVC) significantly decreases attempts, failures, and complication rates. Despite national organizations recommending the use of USG and its increasing availability, USG is used inconsistently and non-uniformly.

We sought to determine if an online training module for CVC insertion with ultrasound guidance will improve acquisition and long-term retention of knowledge and skills for attending physicians. Participants were tested for declarative knowledge and skills on a simulator (pre-test) for ultrasound-guided CVC insertion at baseline. They then completed an online learning module followed by an immediate post-test and a six-month retention test. There were 16 attending physicians who participated in the study. The CVC training module increased declarative knowledge acquisition and retention. No significant difference in simulated CVC performance was found over the three time points.
