With great successes in hosting our first couple of Twitter chats over the last six months, we’re excited to bring you the third in our quarterly series, #JHMChat, where you ask Journal of Hospital Medicine (JHM) authors about their research and corresponding clinical implications for managing inpatient care. We invite you to join us for the next #JHMChat on Monday, April 4th at 9pm EDT, when we will discuss Dr. Kurt Pfeifer et al.’s article from JHM, “Updates in perioperative medicine”, which you can read here.
Perioperative care is a critical skillset for today’s hospitalists. The article authored by Dr. Pfeifer and colleagues highlights key clinical pearls from recent research on best practices in perioperative medicine. As the patient population ages and cases become more medically complex, hospitalists are key providers in ensuring safe, quality care for patients before, during and after surgery.
In keeping with our theme of promoting high value care in hospital medicine, we will cover specific controversies such as the latest thinking on the following conundrums:
- Perioperative beta blockade
- Use of aspirin perioperatively
- Bridging anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation
Please join us and Dr. Kurt Pfeifer to discuss high value linical practices in perioperative medicine. Getting ready for the #JHMChat is easy. Here’s how:
- 1. Read the article.
- 2. Share this blog post and invite colleagues and trainees who would be interested in perioperative and/or hospital medicine to join the Twitter chat.
- 3. If you haven’t done so already, follow us all on Twitter: @JHospMedicine, @SHMLive, @futuredocs, @KurtPfeifer, @CostsofCare, @ABIMFoundation
