Although general internists and subspecialists are familiar with prescribing and managing medications in typical outpatient and inpatient venues, the perioperative period represents a challenging and often unfamiliar setting. This module will outline the principles, available evidence, and expert opinion to be considered when making perioperative management recommendations for some of the most commonly prescribed medications.

Anticoagulant medications are commonly prescribed to patients in the United States for a number of medical problems. Interruptions in anticoagulation can result in severe adverse outcomes, including permanent disability and death, from arterial and venous thromboembolism. These medications, however, can also be associated with serious perioperative bleeding events. In fact, both bleeding and thromboembolic risks are amplified in the periprocedural period. This module addresses the risk of thromboembolism associated with periprocedural interruption of anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation, a mechanical heart valve, or a history of venous thromboembolism.

Pain is probably the most common presenting or associated symptom in patients in the hospital, and patients are often more concerned about being in pain than they are about the primary reason for admission. Pain is a completely subjective experience that is the consequence of the filtering, modulating, and distorting of the afferent nerve activity (i.e., nociceptive input) through the affective (i.e., limbic system) and cognitive processes unique to each individual. The following educational module discusses why postoperative pain requires treatment, outlines methods for performing a proper assessment of pain, provides strategies for utilizing patient-controlled analgesia safely and effectively, and summarizes the use of opioid and non-opioid analgesics in the postoperative setting to help hospitalists improve patients’ quality of recovery and life.

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.

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.
