HM11 sessions offer an unprecedented diversity of topics in hospital medicine, all presented in nine easy-to-follow tracks based on areas of interest:
- Academics and Research: A track specifically designed for hospitalists in academic medical centers or who are interested in research.
- Clinical 1: This track focuses on the essential topics in adult clinical medicine and emphasizes recent advances in HM that should be incorporated into a hospitalist’s approach to clinical-care delivery.
- Clinical 2: This track presents issues and solutions for additional clinical topics beyond the essentials presented in the Clinical 1 track.
- Evidence-Based Rapid Fire: This track gives participants “rapid bursts” of information and addresses 10 of the most pressing clinical issues in HM, based on the highest level of medical evidence available.
- Palliative Care: The track features presentations by experts with insight into the issues of dealing with death with dignity, advanced pain-management strategies, and issues that go beyond pain management.
- Pediatric: This track will focus on pediatric hospitalist practice management, as well as current clinical issues encountered by pediatric hospitalists.
- Practice Management: This year’s topics will focus on understanding key healthcare reform, financial drivers, employment models, improving patient satisfaction, ED throughput, mitigating legal risks, and the results of the first NPP hospitalist survey.
- Quality: Given the importance of quality and patient safety in the delivery of healthcare, this track will address the imperatives around development and implementation of QI efforts in the hospital.
