Hereditary Cancer Syndromes: From Identifying Patients at Risk to Navigating Patients to Management (EM1908A)
  • AMA
  • Attendance
$0.00 This course is a one hour video-based education opportunity to educate physicians on how to identify individuals at risk for more common and rarer hereditary cancer syndromes, how patients should be managed as there have been recent changes to National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for many specific genes, and the impact of a genetic patient navigator on high-risk patient care. the practice standard used will be NCCN guidelines, but as guidelines are changing rapidly, this event would provide a succinct review to keep learners abreast of new information.
In-Situ Simulation
09/18/2018 $0.00 The UTSW High Reliability Team is offering in-situ simulation in both Clements and Zale hospital units. Through simulation of an emergent and critical patient event and subsequent debriefing, staff and faculty are able to practice their teamwork and communication skills. This safe environment utilizes a high fidelity manikin that simulates patient decompensation. Through debriefing, participants discuss what went well and what could have been done better in regards to teamwork and communication.

EM1903I "Treating Pain Based on the Underlying Mechanism: Are We There Yet?" (IM GR-032219)
  • AMA
$0.00 Most practitioners have historically considered chronic pain to be largely from peripheral nociceptive input (i.e. damage or inflammation). If they consider central nervous system involvement in pain, they typically focus entirely on psychological factors. We now understand that non-psychological central nervous system factors can markedly increase (sensitization) or decrease pain sensitivity, in that the CNS is now thought of as “setting the volume control” or gain on pain processing and determining what nociception is felt as pain.
EM1904D "Something Old, Something New… Acute Presentations of Interstitial Lung Disease" (IM GR-040519)
  • AMA
$0.00 Interstitial lung diseases represent a varied corner of pulmonary medicine. Acute presentations of ILD, whether de novo ILD or an exacerbation of chronic ILD, can be dramatic and similar in their symptoms, level of hypoxemia, and most have poor prognoses for complete recovery. Treatments are often off-label, based on single or small case reports. More focus in clinical trials is warranted.
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Scientific Day 2019: Research and Evidence-Based Update on Spine Disorders
  • AMA
  • Attendance

EM1904E "Acute Kidney Injury – a 2019 Update" (IM GR-041219)
  • AMA
$0.00 The purpose of this presentation is to increase awareness of recent developments relating to the detection and incidence of acute kidney injury as well as the effectiveness of interventions for its prevention and treatment. Epidemiologic studies of AKI incidence and mortality using new diagnostic criteria will be reviewed and contrasted. Evidence for the effectiveness of preventive strategies including AKI alerts, care bundles, ischemic preconditioning and N-acetylcysteine will be reviewed.
Physician Financial Interests and CMS Open Payments (RP1904H)
  • AMA
  • Attendance
04/22/2019 $0.00 This session will present material relevant to CMS Open Payments, a federally mandated program whereby drug and device manufacturers report payments made to physicians and teaching hospitals.  The session will review the history of open payments, the current requirements for open payments, how to navigate the Open Payments web site, and how physicians can review payments attributed to them as well as how to dispute inappropriately attributed payments.
