More and more hospitalists are now using point-of-care ultrasound as a bedside tool in the care of acutely ill patients, and the Society of Hospital Medicine is expanding its educational offerings to improve hospitalists’ point-of-care ultrasound skills. In addition to offering a hands-on workshop at the annual meeting, as well as a certification program, SHM has begun to offer online education. The Point-of-care Ultrasound Question bank provides an interactive online educational experience for learners to assess their ability to apply knowledge through a series of questions in the context of common clinical cases and image interpretation challenges.

As the use of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) becomes more widespread, clinicians need to understand the advances and supporting clinical trial data in order to use rtCGM effectively in their practices. With this program, we intend to update hospital-based clinicians on the latest uses of rtCGM in both the intensive care unit (ICU) and the non-ICU settings. We will provide best practices that can be implemented to improve patient care and outcomes.

This module will review current knowledge regarding the utilization of routine and daily laboratory evaluation for hospitalized patients in the context of the Choosing Wisely campaign recommendation to not to perform repetitive complete blood count (CBC) and chemistry testing in the face of clinical and lab stability. The module will then walk through the “QI roadmap” briefly discussing how an institution can evaluate their local practice and improve performance in line with the Choosing Wisely recommendation. This module will review the relevant steps, but does assume that the audience is familiar with the content of the “Planning and Executing Quality Improvement Projects” QI CME module through SHM.

Mounting evidence shows that the American healthcare system costs too much for the results it achieves in terms of patient outcomes and access. Many different parts of this system need attention, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, the inpatient / hospital environment is a “high intensity” healthcare delivery setting, and the “Choosing Wisely” initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) offers a list of low value healthcare practices which make great targets for improvement efforts. In this module, we will tackle one of the top five practices chosen for Choosing Wisely by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM): excessive transfusion.

Keeping abreast of the latest literature in pediatric hospital medicine (PHM) is an ongoing challenge. As a service to its members engaged in PHM, the SHM Annual Conference includes a “Top Articles” session to engage its members in high-impact articles. Although attendees are encouraged to read the full text of these articles from the links supplied, there is no mechanism by which members can assess their knowledge gained from these articles. This online activity will allow participants to review articles from past “Top Articles” talks in detail and assess the knowledge gained from this review.

The Society of Hospital Medicine’s Center for Quality Improvement offers a unique opportunity for hospitalists to learn about quality improvement successes their colleagues are realizing at their home institutions. SHM’s Center for Quality Improvement will host a panel of two quality improvement enthusiasts to present about their quality improvement projects. These presenters will share what they have learned, strategies they have employed to overcome impediments to realizing their quality improvement objectives and review best practices for hospitalists and QI enthusiasts.

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a major cause of postoperative illness, longer hospitalization, and increased healthcare costs, making the prevention and treatment of SSIs an important aspect of patient care for hospitalists. The following module outlines patient and procedural factors that increase the risk of SSIs, examines the basic principles of antimicrobial prophylaxis for SSI, reviews nonantibiotic interventions to lessen the risk of SSI, and outlines evaluation for and treatment of an SSI. In addition, a discussion of the controversy surrounding preoperative decolonization of Staphylococcus aureus is provided.
