NHSN: 2/29 Training, Annual Training, Report Fixed

See https://nwrnbulletins.wordpress.com/2016/02/10/229-webstream-nhsn-training/ for details about webstreaming the live February 29-March 4, 2016 NHSN Training on Applying the 2016 Changes to Accurately Report HAIs.

The CMS ESRD QIP requires that all NHSN users who participate in Dialysis Event Surveillance must complete the self-paced online Dialysis Event Surveillance training at http://nhsn.cdc.gov/nhsntraining/courses/2016/C18/ , and read the NHSN Dialysis Event Surveillance Protocol at http://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/PDFs/pscManual/8pscDialysisEventcurrent.pdf , annually.  After completing the training, you may be eligible to receive 1.5 CME, 1.3 CNE credits, or 0.1 CEUs free.  Email questions about the annual training to the NHSN helpdesk at nhsn@cdc.gov , entering “Dialysis Training” in the subject line.

Following the January 9, 2016 NHSN release, the “Line Listing – Dialysis Practices Survey v.8.3-8.5” (for 2015 and 2016) report was not displaying properly; this has now been fixed.
