Perioperative Management CME from the Experts
The Perioperative Management continuing medical education course focuses on current and concise knowledge to improve patient outcomes through preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management, and postoperative care.
Directed by Nauder Faraday, MD, MPH, and Sean Berenholtz, MD, MHS, FCCM, from Johns Hopkins, a leader in perioperative medicine, this online CME includes case-based lectures on topics like cardiac and pulmonary risk assessment, perioperative renal dysfunction, pain management, management of diabetes and hyperglycemia, and more. It will help you to better:
- Illustrate effective management of bleeding and thrombotic risks in surgical patients
- Identify strategies for controlling postoperative pain and reducing opioid dependency
- Outline ways to prevent, diagnose and treat common infections that complicate surgical procedures
- Discuss multi-disciplinary approaches to minimize complications and improve patient outcomes
Aftre completing this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
- Describe current guidelines for preoperative cardiac and pulmonary risk assessment and list several ways to predict and prevent cardiac and pulmonary complications using preoperative testing and intraoperative and postoperative interventions.
- Describe bleeding and thrombotic risks in surgical patients and list several strategies to reduce complications through evidence-based use of blood conservation methods, transfusion, coagulation testing, anticoagulant reversal agents, and/or management of anti-thrombotic drug therapies.
- Describe strategies to control acute postoperative pain using multimodal analgesia and reduce risk for chronic opioid dependency.
- Recognize how to prevent, diagnose, and treat common healthcare associated infections that complicate surgical procedures.
- Describe the perioperative complications associated with diabetes, renal insufficiency, delirium, and frailty, and list management strategies to optimize outcomes in patients with these medical conditions.
- Recognize the impact of structural and cultural factors related to the healthcare system (e.g., provider stress, safety culture, communication strategies) on the safety and quality of healthcare delivery, and describe the potential of various multi-disciplinary programs (e.g., enhanced recovery after surgery, perioperative surgical home, CUSP) to improve health outcomes.
This activity is intended for anesthesiologists, internal medicine specialists, hospitalists, surgeons, family practitioners, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
