Clinical Procedure Manual

The VNAA Clinical Procedure Manual (CPM), formerly Nursing Procedure Manual, has been a nationally recognized staple in visiting nurse, home health and hospice communities since 1986. It was designed specifically to help multidisciplinary home health and hospice professional teams meet their OASIS process measures and enhance their ability to deliver high quality and consistent care in one adaptable and comprehensive evidence-based manual.
webcpm
More than 40 certified clinicians who hold advanced degrees or certifications wrote and revised the CPM’s 25 sections and 326 evidence-based procedures, checking for congruence with latest practice guidelines and best practices. Meet our expert clinical review panel and the sections they wrote or edited.

The manual was reviewed to ensure the accuracy of its content for all home health and hospice staff caring for patients at home. The VNAA conducted this review process with professional clinical experts who have a variety of home care experience including, but not limited to, registered nurses, intravenous certified nurses, wound and ostomy specialists, certified diabetes educators, physical and occupational therapists, physicians and dietitians.

With so many procedures included, purchasing this evidence-based manual eliminates the need to write your own clinical manual. 97% of past purchasers said they would recommend the VNAA manual to other home health and hospice industry professionals. Members of the Home Care Association of New Hampshire qualify for significant discounts on VNAA materials. Contact us to find out more.
