Optimizing the Inpatient Experience for Physicians & Patients: The Power of Communication
September 28th to 29th, 2017
Rush University Medical Center
Chicago, IL

Physicians today face many challenges in the inpatient setting:

  • Establishing a trusting, therapeutic relationship quickly with patients in the setting of acute illness and uncertainty
  • Leading and coordinating input from diverse, inter-professional teams
  • Managing an increasing number of handoffs
  • Dealing with pressure from administrators around HCAHPS scores, length of stay, readmissions, and payments from CMS
  • Retaining high quality physicians and APPs in a high stress inpatient environment
  • Integrating and educating trainees while still providing efficient, safe care

A low cost, high value solution to all of these challenges is to optimize physician-patient communication

This conference is tailored to inpatient providers and brings together proven best practices from medical centers around the country to address these issues. Improved communication at the interpersonal level and operational level can be achieved to benefit physicians and patients.

SHMConsults — Consultative and Perioperative Medicine for Hospitalists (formerly known as Johns Hopkins Consultative Medicine Essentials)

Hospitalists are the fastest growing portion of the physician work force. Some estimate there will be 50,000 hospitalists needed in the next 10 years. As the number of hospitalists grows, so too will the clinical settings in which we practice. Consultative medicine is a service provided by many hospitalists, and a future in which almost all surgical patients are co-managed by hospitalists is already a reality for some. For many of us, our training in consultative medicine during residency was limited. We hope this curriculum will help you to feel more confident about your knowledge and skills and will lead to better patient outcomes. We welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
