Clinical Procedure Manual

VNAA is pleased to present the latest edition of the award-winning Clinical Procedure Manual (CPM), a staple of home-based care agencies committed to ensuring high quality care for each patient at each visit. As the backbone of clinical practice, it is imperative that clinical procedures be performed in a consistent, reliable way by each clinician each time. 

The CPM is reviewed biannually to ensure its content meets current professional guidelines and best practices while supporting its purpose; to enable providers to deliver the best care possible to patients. In this revision, contributing editors represent a diverse interdisciplinary group of professionals. This streamlined edition is based on updated professional guidelines, integrates recommended tools directly into procedures and places a new emphasis on patient/family education needs and documentation.

Information on the hard copy and access to the digital platform, offered through Elsevier, is available here.
