With 25+ one-hour lectures, Hospital Medicine Review will help you develop expertise in complex, hospital-level care, which can translate into decreased length of stay, overall quality improvement, better resource utilization, and improved clinical outcomes.
Experienced hospitalists discuss acute and chronic medical conditions found in hospitalized patients, in-hospital procedures, unique patient populations, healthcare systems, interprofessional collaboration, and more. Here are just a few of the key-take home points you’ll glean from this online CME program:
- Care Transitions in Hospital Medicine. Communication during shift and service changes —involving both the sender and receiver — have major implications for patient safety, workflow, and delivery of quality care.
- What Hospitalists Should Know About COVID-19 Infection. For patients with severe acute hypoxemic respiratory failure due to COVID-19, high flow nasal cannula may reduce the rate of intubation and mortality, and should be preferentially used over non-invasive ventilation strategies.
- Coma: Diagnosis, Management, and Prognosis. Coma is typically a self-limited condition that — after 1 to 2 weeks and in the absence of full recovery of consciousness — usually evolves into a vegetative or minimally conscious state.
- Headache/Status Migrainosus: Diagnosis and Management. Status migrainosus is a prolonged refractory migraine attack (> 72 hours) that should be differentiated from secondary causes of headache and may require the use of multi-day IV medication regimens if outpatient treatments are not tolerated or effective.
- And more…
