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 second installment of 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.

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.

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.

Current estimates indicate that 2 to 3 million Americans take anticoagulants for prevention of thromboembolism from venous thromboembolism, atrial fibrillation, or prosthetic heart valves. Invasive procedures are performed in as many as 250 000 patients taking anticoagulants on an annual basis in the United States. Consequently, management of anticoagulants in the perioperative period is a common and vexing challenge for physicians. Because not all patients are at the same risk of thromboembolism and not all procedures are associated with the same risk of bleeding, it is important for hospitalists to know how to weigh these risks in their patients. The purpose of this module is to review risk stratification for thromboembolism and bleeding associated with different thromboembolic disorders and invasive procedures.

Preoperative testing can provide valuable information to identify patients who are at high risk for perioperative complications and reduce perioperative morbidity and mortality; however, there is little benefit from routinely testing patients who are known to be at low risk. The objectives of preoperative testing are to identify patients who are at high risk for perioperative complications, assess the severity or stability of existing medical problems, and evaluate abnormal symptoms or signs detected during the preoperative assessment. This module discusses the common challenges and pitfalls of preoperative testing, describes how pretest probability influences the decision to order preoperative tests, and identifies appropriate indications for laboratory, radiologic, and other forms of preoperative test screening. The selection of appropriate screening tools to identify patients at high risk for specific perioperative complications and the use of post-test probability to select and interpret preoperative diagnostic testing is also examined.

This activity was made possible in part by an educational grant from Novartis. This is the third session in a four-part series, SHM Clinical Rapid Updates: Heart Failure. This session covers quality improvement focused approach for heart failure patient during hospitalization. Specific subtopics addressed in this session include: 1. Describe novel HF therapies that are potential QI targets including SGLT2 inhibitors alone and in combination w/ ANRI 2. Describe results of recent studies as potential QI targets including EMPRROR Reducediv and DAPA HFv 3. Discuss QI efforts in this area This panel was moderated by Dr. Jagriti Chadha, MD, FHM. Our panelists included Dr. Tresa McNeal, MD, FACP, SFHM, Interim Chair for the Department of Medicine at BSW Medical Center in Temple, Texas, and Dr. Dustin Smith, MD, SFHM, Associate Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.
