Release Date: Nov 01, 2018
Expiry Date: Nov 01, 2020

Accreditation: 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™

Each STS CME activity in The Annals consists of a self-study test on an original article from one of the journal's major subject categories (Adult Cardiac Surgery, General Thoracic Surgery, Congenital Heart Surgery, and Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology), a statement of the learning objectives and an evaluation of the activity.

Learning Objective:
After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
• discuss the predictive capacity of biomarker measurement in a derivation cohort.
• recognize the failure of biomarker predictive value in an external cohort of patients.
• identify the contribution to overall predictive capacity of established clinical variables with regards to readmission rates as well as the additive effect of including a biomarker analysis.

Target Audience

The intended audience consists of thoracic and cardiothoracic surgeons, pediatric cardiac surgeons, general surgeons, anesthesiologists, oncologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and radiologists. MDs and DOs can take the CME activities for credit; non-MDs and non-DOs should not claim credit.
