CME : 18.5
Perioperative Management is organized by Ebix | Oakstone Publishing, LLC.
Start Date: Apr 01, 2019
End Date: Apr 01, 2022
The target audience for this medical event is anesthesiologists, internal medicine specialists, hospitalists, surgeons, family practitioners, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Course Overview :
This CME program covers a broad range of topics in perioperative medicine and provides deep insight into current trends in preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management and postoperative care. The Johns Hopkins’ Perioperative Management clinical update includes case-based lectures on topics like perioperative management of diabetes and hyperglycemia, perioperative renal dysfunction, management of patient with aortic stenosis for noncardiac surgery, perioperative management of myocardial ischemia, etc. It will help you to:
• Illustrate effective management of bleeding and thrombotic risks in surgical patients
• Appraise the management of perioperative complications associated with diabetes, renal insufficiency, hepatic dysfunction, delirium, etc.
• Demonstrate the potential of various multidisciplinary programs to improve health outcomes
• Outline ways to prevent, diagnose and treat common healthcare infections that complicate surgical procedures
• Discuss approaches to minimize perioperative complications and improve patient outcomes
Learning Objectives :
At the conclusion of this CME activity, you will be better able 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, anti-fibrinolytic agents and management of antithrombotic drug therapies.
• Describe the perioperative complications associated with diabetes, renal insufficiency, hepatic dysfunction, delirium, and frailty, and list management strategies to optimize outcomes in patients with these medical conditions.
• Recognize how to prevent, diagnose, and treat common healthcare associated infections that complicate surgical procedures.
• 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 multidisciplinary programs (e.g. enhanced recovery after surgery, perioperative surgical home, CUSP) to improve health outcomes.
