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.

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.
