Perioperative Cardiac Risk Assessment
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 Perioperative cardiac complications are the most widely feared medical issues for the anesthesiologist, surgeon, and medical consultant as they approach a patient with the option of surgery. To assess for the preoperative cardiac risk, hospitalists should follow a step-wise algorithm. The following module reviews the risk assessment process and enables the hospitalist to order appropriate preoperative testing.
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.
Point-of-Care Ultrasound: Clinical Cases and Image Interpretation Practice Questions
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$95.00 More and more hospitalists are now using point-of-care ultrasound as a bedside tool in the care of acutely ill patients, and the Society of Hospital Medicine is expanding its educational offerings to improve hospitalists’ point-of-care ultrasound skills. In addition to offering a hands-on workshop at the annual meeting, as well as a certification program, SHM has begun to offer online education. The Point-of-care Ultrasound Question bank provides an interactive online educational experience for learners to assess their ability to apply knowledge through a series of questions in the context of common clinical cases and image interpretation challenges.
Antimicrobial Stewardship Module: Bacterial Infections
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Inappropriate antimicrobial use in hospitalized patients contributes to growing antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial-related complications and infections like Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Antimicrobial stewardship focuses on using the appropriate medication, dose, route, and duration based on patient-specific factors to avoid unnecessary use and/or overuse of antimicrobials, which contributes to healthcare costs, adverse drug events, and antimicrobial resistance.
Cognitive Bias and Diagnostic Errors
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$95.00
Clinical Documentation & Coding for Hospitalists
$200.00 Clinical Documentation & Coding for Hospitalists (formerly CODE-H) offers hospitalists the latest information on best practices in coding, documentation and compliance from national experts. The program provides 8 recorded webinar sessions presented by expert faculty worth 8 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM and 2 Q&A sessions worth additional CME.
Critical Care of Patients with Liver Disease
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • Non-physician
$95.00 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). 
Non-Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation For the Hospitalist
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • 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.
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.
