Diagnosis and Management of Acute Mental Status Changes: Delirium
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • ABIM MOC Self Evaluation Points
$0.00 The following module provides hospitalists with methods for diagnosing and managing delirium. A management strategy for the prevention and treatment of alcohol withdrawal delirium is also discussed.
Antimicrobial Stewardship: Fungal Infections
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Invasive fungal infections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients and are of particular significance in immunocompromised patients. As first-line care providers, it is important to have a good grasp of the changing epidemiology, current and emerging diagnostic approaches, and principles of rational and responsible deployment of antifungal therapies so as to maximize the probability of favorable patient outcomes.
Perioperative Infections and Fever
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Perioperative fever has multiple possible etiologies, including infections such as pneumonia, fungal infections, central-line associated infections, and urinary infections. By understanding the typical time frame and common risk factors for each etiology, hospitalists and other perioperative consultants can develop a differential diagnosis for perioperative fever. The following module will provide a general approach for determining the differential diagnosis in patients with a perioperative fever, as well as an outline of the diagnostic and treatment modalities. 
Prevention and Treatment of Surgical Site Infections
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Non-physician
$0.00 The following module outlines the different patient and procedural risk factors that influence SSIs, examines the basic principles of antimicrobial prophylaxis for SSI, reviews nonantibiotic interventions to lessen the risk of SSI, and outlines evaluation for and treatment of an SSI. In addition, a discussion of the controversy surrounding preoperative decolonization of Staphylococcus aureus is provided. 
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.
C. Difficile Infection
  • AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
$0.00 Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is a Gram-positive, toxin-producing, anaerobic bacillus, which is commonly responsible for antibiotic-associated diarrhea. An estimated 500 000 cases occur each year in the United States, and the incidence and severity of disease appear to be increasing. The morbidity of C. difficile infection (CDI) has risen by as much as 25% per year, and a 20-fold increase in mortality has been reported. Human transmission is through the fecal-oral route, and CDI has become the most frequently reported hospital-acquired infection, with nosocomial acquisition more than quadrupling the cost of hospitalization.
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.
