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.

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.
Perioperative Evaluation and Treatment of Adrenal Insufficiency
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 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.
