"Safe Prescribing When Your XX Patient Needs a Category X Med"
Dr. Scott Visovatti
The Medical Education pre-course features didactic lectures and workshops by seasoned faculty on key topics in medical education including assessment and remediation. It also offers an opportunity for participants to improve their teaching skills in evidence-based medicine and clinical reasoning. In addition, participants will learn how to incorporate technology and social media to optimize their trainees learning.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1) Describe effective methods of teaching evidence-based medicine to trainees.2) Demonstrate the use of technology and social media platforms to engage learners and advance scholarship.3) Articulate how to perform learner needs assessment in various educational settings.4) Apply teaching skills in a microteaching session.
Seventy-five percent of hospitalists now care for patients in the Intensive Care Unit, indicating an increased need for competency-based education targeted at the management of critical care. This course intends to focus on various topics that pertain to critical care medicine and provide hospitalists with essential information to manage this patient population. Our course will incorporate a mechanical ventilator workshop, which includes a real time demonstration of modes and waveforms using an artificial lung and simulated patient. In addition, our speakers will provide updates on some of the most pertinent areas of critical illness frequently faced by hospitalists.
1) Describe an evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and management of patients with severe sepsis and septic shock.2) Formulate a strategy to minimize risk and improve patient safety in the ICU.3) Recite the approach to patients with acute hypoxemic and acute hypercapnic respiratory failure.4) Demonstrate the ability to set, adjust and troubleshoot the mechanical ventilator.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:1.Explain the challenges for hospital-based healthcare professionals in the Midwest.2.Identify nosocomial infections and how to prevent, diagnose and treat them.3.Explain risk factors for opioid abuse and strategies to minimize potential for abuse.4.Describe signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and evidence based strategies to manage alcohol withdrawal.5.Analyze inpatient guidelines for treatment of conditions such as COPD and Pneumonia.6.Describe key features of effective use of Advanced Practice Providers in hospital medicine groups and how to integrate them into practice.

We are pleased to invite you to our 13th Annual Heart Failure Holiday SymposiumDecember 1-2, 2017 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital s Conference Center in Chicago. Now in its thirteenth year, this symposium is respected as a top tier regional heart failure meeting. Critical updates and thoughtful contemporary reviews delivered by national experts in the field, including recognized Northwestern faculty members, have been the hallmark of this program. This year we will once again assemble leading cardiologists and cardiac surgeons with expertise in heart failure and cardiac surgery to provide updates on the verylatest scientific, genetic, behavioral and technological advances for managing patients with heart failure.

The aim of this course is to provide up-to-date information about the cardiovascular care of women of all ages for health care providers. On the same day, and often with the same speakers, there is a course with similar topics for the community. The concept is to educate women and their health care providers with much of the same information. The community course is interactive and stresses healthy lifestyle issues. The professional conference is a CME conference assembling experts in the field to discuss the latest advances and research. Both courses have been well received by their respective audiences.

This meeting will adopt an evidence based, guideline driven update of the critical domains in cardiovascular medicine. Our world-renowned faculty and guest speakers will deliver seminars on hypertension, prevention, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease, and acute coronary syndrome. Significant new data and summaries of guidelines will represent the platform for our discussions. A recurring feature of the summer program is the link with the American College of Cardiology. We have traditionally hosted the outgoing ACC president to provide a what s new in the ACC lecture. We also have acquired ACC co-sponsorship and will once again offer Maintenance of Certification for all attendees. This benefit is embedded in the registration fee. MOC is facilitated by a series of IT support services including real-time Q & A via a moderated iPAD as the questions are reviewed and an unique Northwestern Medicine CV CME APP to aid in navigation of MOC questions
While pulmonary hypertension remains a challenging disease, there has been an increased awareness by clinicians from the routine use of diagnostic tools such as Doppler echocardiography and the availability of the many pulmonary vasodilator drugs. Because it is uncommon, it is difficult for physicians to develop sufficient experience and expertise unless they are part of a specialty center. The etiology can be multifactorial, making it difficult to know the dominant cause in some patients and thus requires a meticulous approach to arrive at the correct diagnosis. The program is designed to increase knowledge of the presentation and diagnosis of the different etiologies of pulmonary hypertension and address ways to implement the latest practice guidelines into clinical practice. The program is designed to improve the competence of physicians in managing patients who present in the community, and know when to refer to specialty centers for advanced care.
