Diagnostic Excellence - Society of Hospital Medicine Learning Cases to Improve Performance
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • Non-physician
$0.00 Online CME/MOC module on diagnostic reasoning/error in hospital medicine as it relates to Teamwork, Handoff, Incidental finding, and Deliberate practice. Participants will learn strategies to identify common cognitive biases that lead to diagnostic errors, and how to mitigate those risks.
Perioperative Care of the Patient with Cancer
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Therapeutic advances in cancer therapy have led to an increase in the number of patients undergoing surgery as part of their cancer treatment. These patients present several unique challenges, including weighing risks against adverse effects of delaying time-sensitive treatment and taking the patient’s cancer and its treatment into account when determining postoperative management. The following module discusses these topics, with an emphasis on cardiovascular and pulmonary toxicities of radiation and chemotherapeutic agents as well as common hematologic problems encountered in patients with cancer.
VTE Prevention in the Hospitalized Medical Patient
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 The world of anticoagulation management is complex. Pharmaceutical breakthroughs in the last few years have created a myriad of questions and protocols for practitioners to consider. In this changing landscape rapid changes create a gap between current and optimal care and professional education is key for bridging that gap. In an October 2016 survey of 45 SHM chapter leaders, 51 percent of respondents selected “VTE and Anticoagulation Updates” as a top priority, ranking it the sixth-most important topic out of nineteen available options.
Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital: Focus on the Noncritically Ill Patient
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Hospitalized patients with diabetes require specific medical management to minimize the risk of hyperglycemia. This module is part of a 2-part series that evaluates the current evidence regarding glycemic control and medications.
Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis in Surgical Patients
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital: Critically Ill and Surgical Patients
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
Pulmonary Risk Management in the Perioperative Setting
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
The Hospitalist’s Role in the Perioperative Management of Hyponatremia
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality that occurs in hospitalized patients, and it is recognized as a serious in-hospital complication. It is a complex electrolyte disorder that results mainly from water imbalances and dysregulation of arginine vasopressin. Hyponatremia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality among the elderly and in patients with heart, liver, or neurologic diseases. The following educational module discusses the pathophysiology of hyponatremia, outlines methods for differentiating the cause, and provides examples of how to manage hyponatremia in a variety of situations commonly faced by hospitalists.
Care for the Underserved
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 The Care for the Underserved module focuses upon the evidence base around caring for diverse underserved populations. SHM’s hope is that this module will help physicians understand the challenges and opportunities in treating underserved populations and ultimately improve the care they deliver to all patients.
Perioperative Bridging of Anticoagulant Therapy
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
