New Patient Experience Community and Resources
SHM’s new Patient Experience Committee has begun convening resources and people to help hospitalists address the patient experience. In addition to new resources on the SHM website, SHM has set up an HMX community specifically dedicated to the many issues related to the experience of patients in the hospital. To get involved, visit www.hospitalmedicine.org/patientexperience.
Project BOOST On-Demand Webinar Available
It’s never too late—or too early—to think about improving processes to reduce readmissions. SHM’s Project BOOST now accepts program applications throughout the year, and the recent webinar with Project BOOST program leaders is now available for free online. www.hospitalmedicine.org/boost.
Glycemic Control Implementation Guide available in June.
Glycemic control and the management of diabetic patients can be challenging for hospitalists. That’s why SHM is presenting the new Glycemic Control Implementation Guide. Recent webinars are available, too, at www.hospitalmedicine.org/qi.
Free CME on Acute Coronary Syndrome
Approximately 1.7 million patients are hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and 600,000 die because of an acute myocardial infarction. Now, SHM is presenting a free self-directed web-based activity designed to help hospitalists evaluate practices and strategies to affect outcomes. For details, visit www.hospitalmedicine.org/qi.
