Annual Training designed to meet The Joint Commission (TJC) Fluoroscopy Standards
This fluoroscopy training course is designed to meet the accreditation standards of the Joint Commission. The course covers dose optimization techniques and tools for pediatric and adult patients addressed in the Image Gently®, Image Gently-Step Lightly®, and Image Wisely® campaigns
The Joint Commission requires healthcare organizations to assess staff and physician competency to provide fluoroscopy services, as outlined in the “Human Resources” and “Medical Staff” chapters of the 2019 Joint Commission Comprehensive Accreditation Manual. A healthcare organization should verify and document that individuals (including physicians, non-physicians, and ancillary personnel) who use fluoroscopic equipment have completed appropriate initial training and participate in ongoing assessment of competency regarding safe procedures for the operation of the type of fluoroscopy equipment they will use.
The course Annual Training for Individuals Who Use Fluoroscopic Equipment from FluoroSafety is approved for up to 2.0 hours of Category 1 CME, and is designed to meet Joint Commission requirements for ongoing assessment of competency regarding safe procedures for the operation of fluoroscopic equipment. Our top quality educational activities follow the recommendations of NCRP Report No. 168, are designed to meet the accreditation standards of The Joint Commission, and provide Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME) MOC credit for most ABMS member boards, including the ABIM, ABR, ABS, ABPMR, and ABA.

Other TJC course options?
This course is designed to be used as ongoing annual training for users of fluoroscopy and does not cover many concepts that are necessary for developing a comprehensive knowledge on the safe use of fluoroscopy. Those seeking initial training on the safe use of fluoroscopy should instead complete the Basic Training Program on the Safe Use of Fluoroscopy or the Advanced Training Program on the Safe Use of Fluoroscopy from FluoroSafety. Please see our Joint Commission initial training page for more details.
