Children with special health care needs are increasingly prevalent in US hospitals. The pediatric hospitalist is often the primary provider of inpatient care for these patients. However, exposure to this patient population during training varies from provider to provider. No published educational curricula are specific to the inpatient care of this population.

This publication is a self-directed education module on central lines in children, including indications for placement, types of lines available, and prevention and treatment of complications. The module includes a PowerPoint slide show, instructor guide, and questions for assessment.

The purpose of this project is to build a multimodal educational curriculum for providers with the overall goal of improving inpatient care for this at-risk population. This curriculum is primarily composed of a series of topic-specific multimedia learning modules. Asynchronous learning modules, utilized appropriately, can augment learning by providing individualized instruction and mastery of fundamentals.

This module has been piloted among pediatric hospitalists in two institutions with effectiveness measured by pre- and posttest surveys. Please see the file attachment entitled CCC Central Lines Module Pilot Data.pdf.
