Conference Description: As the established leader in perioperative medicine, this course aims to provide practitioners with the most up-to-date knowledge necessary to deliver Thirty million patients undergo surgical procedures in the U.S. each year, and the age and medical complexity of this patient population is increasing. All these patients require preoperative assessment, intraoperative management, and postoperative care. Every year the body of peer-reviewed literature on this topic increases and new guidelines on clinical management are formulated. Because the breadth of knowledge in perioperative medicine, which includes the diverse disciplines of surgery, anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, infectious diseases and geriatrics, is vast, many practitioners may not have up-to-date information that is critical to clinical practice. The curriculum for this course was specifically created to address the needs of clinicians who provide care for patients before, during, and after surgery. As the established leader in perioperative medicine, this course aims to provide practitioners with the most up-to-date knowledge necessary to deliver effective, evidence-based care by affecting healthcare practices at the level of the individual and the larger health system. Conference Objectives: • 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) to improve health outcomes. • Pediatric Perioperative Management Symposium: Recognize risk factors for adverse outcome in children requiring anesthesia for common procedures. • Pediatric Perioperative Management Symposium: Describe strategies to identify and mitigate risk of adverse outcome in pediatric patients who require anesthesia using patient-based, team-based, and/or informatics-based approaches. • Pediatric Perioperative Management Symposium: Describe strategies to control postoperative pain in children using multimodal therapy. • Point of Care Ultrasound Workshop: Recognize basic views for real-time ultrasound guided vascular access and perform vascular access on simulation equipment using ultrasound. • Point of Care Ultrasound Workshop: Recognize and interpret basic transthoracic ultrasound views of cardiac and lung structures. • Point of Care Ultrasound Workshop: Apply basic ultrasound algorithms to diagnose and manage an unstable perioperative patient. Pediatric Perioperative Management Symposium February 17, 2019 2:00 PM-5:00 PM Point of Care Ultrasound Workshop (Limited Availability) February 18-19, 2019 2:00 PM- 5:00 PM
