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.
Mechanical Ventilation Part I: The Basics
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
  • Non-physician
$0.00 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.
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.
