PICC Excellence, Inc.is an educational company committed to providing educational programs, certification, and continuing education credits for vascular access education. PICC Excellence is an educational company that provides a support network and continuing education contact hours for vascular access professionals who insert or manage central venous catheters. Our goal is to be a source for evidence-based education to promote a greater understanding of vascular access best practices while providing a support network for anyone inserting, managing or interested in these devices. We meet these goals by providing scientifically sound and learner driven criteria in group training workshops, customized on-site training, online education and certification for physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, radiological technologists, respiratory therapists, sales representatives, patients and anyone interested in these subjects. We provide the tools, knowledge, and level of expertise you need to impart the best care to your patients using the latest techniques and technology.
PICC Excellence launched the Certified PICC Ultrasound Insertion (CPUI™) credentialing program in 2009. CPUI is an international certification program for clinicians and medical professionals who place peripherally inserted central IV catheters (PICCs). Our mission is to share knowledge and elevate vascular access to a higher level of success and safety in clinical practice for nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, physicians’ assistants and radiological technicians. This certification program validates clinicians’ qualifications to perform ultrasound guided PICC placement, a highly valued procedure, but one that is also very invasive and potentially life-threatening. The CPUI program aims at improving patient safety and promoting higher standards in healthcare. PICC Excellence, as a medical and nursing education company, created the CPUI credential in part so patients and employers could verify that an individual clinician is trained and qualified to insert a central venous catheter. The credential verifies training consistent with national recommendations from Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) strategies for improving patient outcomes. This program, which expands the trainings offered by PICC Excellence, is the first credentialing program of its kind for medical professionals performing PICC placement.
How do we continually provide excellence in vascular access education to such a wide variety of clinicians? Our team of professionals constantly research the field of vascular access to bring you the most current, effective, evidence-based practices available.
Prior to the CPUI, qualifications to place PICCs have been loosely defined, including completion of an unspecified educational program followed by unconfirmed supervised insertions. Our initiative is aimed at defining the knowledge necessary for this specialty practice and providing the verification to ensure patient safety with these procedures. With infection as the gravest concern associated with central venous catheters, becoming a Certified PICC Ultrasound Inserter establishes the clinician as one who is knowledgeable of infection prevention principles and able to function with patient safety in mind. We at PICC Excellence feel patient safety is a serious issue gaining national attention with guidelines and recommendations created to protect the public. Today’s healthcare requires hospitals to apply the guidelines and demonstrate clinician credentialing for all invasive procedures such as central venous catheter insertion.
The CPUI program is a process that certifies clinical qualification to insert PICCs. The qualifying material verifies the participating clinician's initial education, supervised practice and insertion experience Statements from clinicians: “Holding this certification for our team let’s our colleagues and patients know that we are experts in our field. It's a process I recommend for anyone in vascular access who places PICC lines.” From another: “I feel the CPUI certification shows my dedication to this profession. This certification was not a requirement in my profession, however, I chose to get certified in this profession which I believe presents me as a professional who is extremely compassionate and competent with the commitment to giving my patients the best patient care available.”
According to another passionate clinician, “The most important piece of a certification is its relevance to the practice while applying patient safety guidelines. This Vascular Access Certification and exam have a focus on Ultrasound, which is a must in today’s practice!" A Vascular access team manager puts it this way, “I feel that our patients have more confidence in me knowing that our team holds certification on a procedure that we perform on them. Knowing that they have put their confidence in us helps us to do the best job that we can do.”
It has been our dream to advance patient safety by making certification available to more clinicians. Our future goals include expansion of online course content and credentialing opportunities in specialty areas of pediatric, neonatal, ultrasound guided peripheral and central device placement for physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals including all types of arterial, peripheral, central venous devices and ultrasound-guided insertions.
Our current services include online e-learning educational programs, workshops, customized on-site training and certification. PICC Excellence also provides a series of infection prevention programs for clinicians and medical professionals interested in improving patient outcomes with vascular access. The courses included on our website are the product of clinician input. We work together with active clinicians to create content and courses. To meet the level of quality we require and is expected by our customers we constantly update the online courses and workshop content based on customer feedback, published peer reviewed research, guidelines and standards.
