Series SummaryThere is significant variability in the facilitation of transitions of care both in the hospital and out of the hospital to home. While there is some consensus regarding evidence-based interventions to successfully facilitate transitions of care and improve patient outcomes, these interventions are not always reliably implemented.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an important complication following cardiac and noncardiac surgery. Up to 18% of hospitalized patients develop AKI, and those who are critically ill have an even higher risk. Comparatively, the incidence of AKI in the perioperative period is 18-47%(1). Patients with even modest increases in their serum creatinine have increases in their mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and hospital costs. Perioperative AKI is associated with an increased risk of sepsis, anemia, coagulopathy, and mechanical ventilation. Notably, mortality is higher in patients with perioperative AKI even after complete renal recovery(1). Perioperative AKI correlates with type of surgical procedure, patient characteristics, volume status, hemodynamics, and exposure to nephrotoxins. Presurgical risk stratification and early risk mitigation is extremely important to avoid injury and need for renal replacement therapy (RRT). The following module defines perioperative AKI, identifies specific risk factors and tools for risk stratification, provides an overview of the workup of perioperative AKI, and evaluates various renal protective strategies that can be implemented during this high-risk period.

SHM's Practice Management Committee moderated a discussion on April 22, 2020 on how to promote well-being during COVID-19. In this webinar, we opened the floor to attendees to speak about the methods their teams or groups have been employing. Come hear the ideas and insights of other programs and leave with even more tools and strategies to support team members.

Patients with liver disease who undergo surgery, whether elective or emergent, are at increased risk for complications. In patients with cirrhosis, perioperative morbidity and mortality vary depending on the type of surgery. An accurate assessment of the presence and severity of acute or chronic liver disease is necessary to plan for perioperative management. Although most patients should continue liver-directed therapies, adjustments in medications may be necessary for certain liver diseases. This module outlines the risk associated with different types of surgery and identifies the elements of the preoperative evaluation for patients with cirrhosis. The influences on morbidity and mortality and formulation of pre- and postoperative care plans are reviewed as well.
