SHM Consults Advanced Curriculum
$0.00 Hospitalists are the fastest growing portion of the physician work force. Some estimate there will be 50,000 hospitalists needed in the next 10 years. As the number of hospitalists grows, so too will the clinical settings in which we practice. Consultative medicine is a service provided by many hospitalists, and a future in which almost all surgical patients are co-managed by hospitalists is already a reality for some. For many of us, our training in consultative medicine during residency was limited.
Anesthesia for Internists
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 The goal of surgical anesthesia is to both relieve and prevent pain during surgical procedures and to facilitate surgery by rendering the patient paralyzed and amnestic when appropriate. While some procedures require a small amount of sedation, others require general anesthetic sedation or regional anesthesia. This module discusses the basic forms of surgical anesthesia and contraindications to each, as well as the most commonly used anesthetic drugs, their mechanisms of actions, and side effects. An overview of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Classification Status System will be presented along with issues that will prompt an anesthesiologist to cancel a surgery on the day of surgery.
The Role of the Medical Consultant
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
Evaluation and Management of Perioperative Anemia
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
The Hospitalist's Role in Ensuring Optimal Nutrition for Hospitalized Patients
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Ensuring optimal nutrition for the hospitalized patient is a complex issue fraught with several pitfalls for clinicians as they asses the patient’s nutritional status and determine the caloric needs and appropriate delivery method. Many factors need to be considered when creating this patient-specific plan. The following module discusses these issues and outlines the various dietary formulations (ie, oral, enteral nutrition, and parenteral nutrition). Step-by-step guidance for how to implement a nutritional plan for the different types of hospitalized patients that hospitalists encounter also is 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.
Perioperative Medication Management
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
