CME of Interest

About

As hospital medicine is a broad and diverse topic, continuing medical education (CME) and training opportunities continue to expand for hospitalists. SHM compiles an ongoing list of recommended, hospital medicine-specific programs that we find to be of value to our members. The CME opportunities listed below are sponsored by other organizations.

Live Events

Advances in Caring for our Aging Population

July 15, 2018
British Isles Cruise on Crystal
Professional Education Society

Experience CME in a new way. Join us aboard a luxury cruise ship as we sail around the British Isles. Enjoy plenty of time to relax and take in the sights while visiting London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and much more. The cruise runs from July 15-29th, 2018. The CME program is designed to be accessible and helpful to physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and other administrative/quality leaders. The program is built upon hospitalist and palliative care provider perspectives, but designed to capture the needs of a much broader base of providers. We will explore practical approaches to bring success to both patients and providers in discussing goals of care, to improve patient satisfaction even in challenging cases and provide an overview of palliative care and hospice applicable to any Provider. Beyond this we will look at some of the evidence around efficient pre-operative evaluation and broader care issues. We'll also throw in a few surprises just for fun. We'll be adding more details via the website in May 2017.

Objectives: To present Providers with evidence and approaches to better assist their patients, especially those of more advanced age, in making decisions regarding basic pre-operative laboratory and cardiac evaluation, Advance Care Planning, Palliative Care, Hospice and other key areas. Particular focus will be given to efficient and effective communication delivered to improve patient satisfaction.

CME Accreditation Statement: 15 Prescribed credit hours by AAFP (accepted as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1), California Board of Registered Nursing
