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.
