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 sale price of $79.00. It is also a great companion product to the Orientation and Competency Assurance Documentation Manual for Respiratory Care.
