The Interprofessional Central Line Training Program was implemented in order to give nurse residents hands-on experience of playing the “observer role” during central line insertions. The training includes stations that outline the steps of insertion, maintenance, and removal of a central line and a test-out where MD residents and fellows team up with nurse residents to complete a simulated central line insertion.
