respiratory care procedures. Each CD also contains a corresponding competency
evaluation form in Microsoft® Excel® and a PDF of any relevant
Clinical Practice Guidelines or Expert Panel Guidelines. The CDs will
provide support both to managers for clinical performance evaluations,
and to educators for visual learning devices. Available at an introductory
