This CME program from Johns Hopkins — the leader in perioperative medicine — focuses on current and concise knowledge to improve patient outcomes through preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management, and postoperative care. Perioperative Management includes case-based lectures on topics like cardiac and pulmonary risk assessment, perioperative renal dysfunction, pain management, management of diabetes and hyperglycemia, and more.
It will also help you to better:
• Illustrate effective management of bleeding and thrombotic risks in surgical patients
• Identify strategies for controlling postoperative pain and reducing opioid dependency

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
• Describe current guidelines for preoperative cardiac and pulmonary risk assessment and list several ways to predict and prevent cardiac and pulmonary complications using preoperative testing and intraoperative and postoperative interventions.
• Describe bleeding and thrombotic risks in surgical patients and list several strategies to reduce complications through evidence-based use of blood conservation methods, transfusion, coagulation testing, anticoagulant reversal agents, and/or management of anti-thrombotic drug therapies.
• Describe strategies to control acute postoperative pain using multimodal analgesia and reduce risk for chronic opioid dependency.
• Recognize how to prevent, diagnose, and treat common healthcare associated infections that complicate surgical procedures.
• Describe the perioperative complications associated with diabetes, renal insufficiency, delirium, and frailty, and list management strategies to optimize outcomes in patients with these medical conditions.
• Recognize the impact of structural and cultural factors related to the healthcare system (e.g., provider stress, safety culture, communication strategies) on the safety and quality of healthcare delivery, and describe the potential of various multi-disciplinary programs (e.g., enhanced recovery after surgery, perioperative surgical home, CUSP) to improve health outcomes.
This activity is intended for anesthesiologists, internal medicine specialists, hospitalists, surgeons, family practitioners, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
