Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital: Critically Ill and Surgical Patients
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Hospitalized patients with diabetes require specific medical management in order to minimize the risk of hyperglycemia. This requires hospitalists to have an understanding of methods for glycemic control in both the critically ill and noncritically ill patient. This module, which focuses on the critically ill hospitalized patient, is part of a 2-part series that will evaluate the current scientific evidence regarding glycemic control and discuss how to formulate preoperative and postoperative intensive care unit plans. In addition, a thorough review of the evidence for intraoperative glycemic control and a discussion of how to transition patients off of an insulin drip are provided.
Perioperative Medication Management
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 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.
Pulmonary Risk Management in the Perioperative Setting
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 As a consultant, hospitalists commonly risk stratify and offer risk reduction strategies for patients undergoing surgery. Effective perioperative pulmonary risk consultation requires hospitalists to identify patient- and procedure-related predictors for developing postoperative pulmonary complications and to propose strategies to reduce the risk. The following module will examine these topics and provide evidence-based risk reduction strategies. In addition, the role of routine preoperative spirometry and chest radiograph will be discussed.
Evaluation and Management of Perioperative Anemia
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Anemia is frequently seen in patients undergoing surgery, and patients with preoperative anemia are more likely to receive perioperative allogeneic blood transfusions than patients with normal hemoglobin levels. Allogeneic blood transfusions are associated with an increase in the rate of postoperative complications. Evaluation of anemia should be performed in the preoperative period and begins with taking a detailed history and physical examination. All efforts must be used to correct anemia or reduce blood loss during surgery to avoid allogeneic blood transfusion. In this module, we will discuss many scenarios commonly faced in perioperative practice.
Diagnosis and Management of Acute Mental Status Changes: Delirium
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 The following module provides hospitalists with methods for diagnosing and managing delirium. A management strategy for the prevention and treatment of alcohol withdrawal delirium is also discussed.
Shock
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$95.00 SERIES SUMMARYMany hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability. This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.TARGET AUDIENCEAny hospitalist physician or advanced practice provider who manages patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). 
The Role of the Medical Consultant
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Medical consultation is an important clinical component for most hospitalists. Traditionally, consultants evaluated patients at the request of the referring physician (RP) and provided an assessment and recommendations. Today, hospitalists are also asked to provide both “curbside” advice and more comprehensive comanagement of medical problems. Hospitalists who are effective consultants communicate skillfully and act professionally. The following module describes the different roles that hospitalists can perform as medical consultants and provides strategies for improving communication and RP satisfaction.
Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis in Surgical Patients
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 Venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in the surgical patient remains an important medical issue. Research has shown that VTE, which includes deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, occurs frequently in hospitalized patients who have undergone general, major gynecologic, major urologic, major orthopedic, or neurosurgery if preventive measures are not taken. Although it is impossible to predict with certainty which surgical patients will develop VTE, it is important for medical consultants to have a working knowledge of the different risk factors for VTE as well as current prophylaxis recommendations in order to employ appropriate strategies to reduce the risk of VTE. The following module discusses the clinical impact of VTE in surgical patients, reviews the various risk factors for VTE in surgical patients, and discusses prophylaxis options.
Non-Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation For the Hospitalist
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$95.00 Many hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability. This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.
Perioperative Evaluation and Treatment of Adrenal Insufficiency
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00 As the use of steroids (usually prednisone) to treat various medical illnesses has expanded, so has the concern for hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression and subsequent adrenal insufficiency (AI). Despite the fact that most clinicians clearly recognize the potential for AI, many find the sometimes-subtle presentation challenging. Furthermore, clinicians often struggle with assessing the likelihood of perioperative AI risk and with preventing it. The following module will address the perioperative management of both patients with known AI and those at risk for HPA axis suppression.
