Society of Hospital Medicine Resources Provide Quality Improvement Tips

Whether you’ve been tasked with leading a major quality improvement program or simply want to make a few things better for your patients, SHM has resources for every scale of quality improvement initiative, all created by national experts in their fields.

1. Attend an SHM Quality Improvement Webinar

The last of SHM’s live quality improvement webinars, “Elevating Provider Experience to Improve Patient Experience,” will be presented at 2 p.m. EST on Nov. 11, by Mark Rudolph, MD, SFHM. You can visit the archives of our other quality improvement webinars on topics like improving patient discharge, managing diabetes in the hospital, and general principles of quality improvement.

2. Tune in to RADEO: SHM’s New Opioid Stewardship Mentored Implementation Program

SHM has introduced RADEO: Reducing Adverse Drug Events related to Opioids, a new implementation guide and mentored implementation program designed to empower hospitalists to make opioid prescribing safer, with fewer adverse events, and much less likely to result in dangerous sedation, respiratory depression, and death.

SHM is recruiting now for participants in the mentored implementation program, and the guide is available online.

3. Download a New QI Resource

When you download a quality improvement toolkit or resource from SHM, you can be confident you are getting the best guidance from the national authorities on improving care for hospitalized patients.

  • End-of-life care;
