The Dialysis Event training course is now available on the Dialysis Event homepage. Every NHSN user must complete re-training annually, before September 30, by re-reading the Dialysis Event Protocol at https://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/pdfs/pscmanual/8pscdialysiseventcurrent.pdf , and taking the online training course at https://nhsn.cdc.gov/nhsntraining/courses/2016/C18/ .
