CME of Interest
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.

Sponsor: Society for Perioperative Assessment and Quality Improvement
Short Description: This learning module was developed by SPAQI leadership for our members who wish to enhance their current practice. Many clinicians in the perioperative setting fail to recognize and appropriately treat residual neuromuscular blockade. The reasons for this are multi-factorial. This module will cover the identification and assessment of risk factors associated with postoperative pulmonary complications as well as the implementation of effective risk reduction measures. An effective approach to quantitative neuromuscular monitoring and the prevention of residual paralysis will be discussed. Thank you to our subject matter experts, Drs. Sweigart and Thilen, for lending their expertise to this production.
1. Review appropriate monitoring strategies to prevent postoperative respiratory failure, including residual paralysis from neuromuscular blockade
2. Highlight methods for minimizing risk of postoperative respiratory failure
3. Recognize, treat, and employ methods to mitigate pulmonary complications associated with intubation and mechanical ventilation
