Perioperative Infections and Fever
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Perioperative fever has multiple possible etiologies, including infections such as pneumonia, fungal infections, central-line associated infections, and urinary infections. By understanding the typical time frame and common risk factors for each etiology, hospitalists and other perioperative consultants can develop a differential diagnosis for perioperative fever. The following module will provide a general approach for determining the differential diagnosis in patients with a perioperative fever, as well as an outline of the diagnostic and treatment modalities.
Perioperative Management of Sleep Apnea and Noninvasive Respiratory Management for the Hospitalist
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 This module discusses these aspects of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the different screening tools available to clinicians. A discussion of the logistical barriers to managing OSA and the options for treatment is included to help hospitalists successfully identify and manage these patients during the perioperative period.
Choosing Wisely: Implementing Quality Improvement Projects addressing Choosing Wisely Topics
$0.00 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 Foundation (ABIMF) offers a list of low value healthcare practices which make great targets for improvement efforts.
Reducing Daily Lab Draw Volume: An SHM Choosing Wisely Quality Improvement Implementation Module
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$0.00 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.
Transfusion Wisely - Implementing a Transfusion Quality Improvement Project: An SHM Choosing Wisely Quality Improvement Implementation Module
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$0.00 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.
Reducing Unnecessary Telemetry Monitoring: An SHM Choosing Wisely Quality Improvement Implementation Module
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$0.00 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.

In this module, we will tackle one of the top five practices chosen for Choosing Wisely by the Society of Hospital Medicine: continuous telemetry monitoring.
Perioperative Cardiac Risk Assessment
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Perioperative cardiac complications are the most widely feared medical issues for the anesthesiologist, surgeon, and medical consultant as they approach a patient with the option of surgery. To assess for the preoperative cardiac risk, hospitalists should follow a step-wise algorithm. The following module reviews the risk assessment process and enables the hospitalist to order appropriate preoperative testing.
