Specialties: Cardiovascular Disease, Diagnostic Radiology, Radiologic Tech


Description

Myocardial CT perfusion imaging is a diagnostic test for patients with suspicion of coronary artery disease (CAD). Recent single and multicenter studies have validated its accuracy and billing/coding guidelines have recently been released by invested medical societies (ACC, ACR, SCCT). However, adoption requires training of cardiologists and radiologists in test performance and interpretation.

This activity is held at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, in a multimedia classroom constructed specifically for the learner’s needs. This is a workstation-based training activity that aims to train participants in the performance and interpretation of rest and stress myocardial CT perfusion imaging. This is in conjunction with the coronary CT angiograms with correlations to radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging and invasive coronary angiograms. This will be accomplished during a three day course that includes didactic lectures and hands on training. Each participant has their own workstation to use throughout the activity with personal interaction with course faculty. The workstation is designed to assist the user in the interpretation of coronary CT angiography in conjunction with rest and stress myocardial CT perfusion imaging. Participants will be trained in the use of the workstation and then will train on a library of coronary and myocardial CT images. At the completion of the course, participants will have interpreted more than 50 coronary CT angiograms and myocardial CT perfusion cases with comparisons to clinical reference standards including invasive angiography, SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging, and FFR. At the completion of training, participants will be provided a certificate documenting completion of the course and the number of cases interpreted.

Monday, September 18, 2017 8:00 AM - Friday, September 22, 2017 7:00 PM Johns Hopkins Bayview, Baltimore, MD


For Registration please call Suzie Orr at 410-550-0845.

Description

The activity is held approximately monthly at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, in a multimedia classroom constructed specifically for the learner’s needs. This is a workstation-based training activity, designed to meet American College of Cardiology/ American Heart Association requirements. Each participant has their own workstation to use throughout the activity and receives personal attention and instruction by the activity faculty. A workstation which projects to the front of the room is used by instructors to demonstrate various aspects of CT interpretation. After receiving training on the use of the workstation, a library of cases selected to demonstrate the variety of pathology which can be evaluated by CT (coronary disease, bypass grafts, stents, anomalies, cardiomyopathies, EP, pericardial disease, cardiac tumors) is reviewed. A minimum of 100 cases are reviewed during the five days of the activity.


Twenty-four hours of didactic instruction are included through lectures and reading materials, which will cover topics of patient selection, preparation, radiation, contrast, cardiac anatomy, assessment of cardiac function, cardiac pathology, etc. Members of the Johns Hopkins faculty and guest faculty will present these topics. Participants will take a quiz to confirm understanding of these materials.


The requirement for observation of the acquisition of 50 studies is satisfied by utilizing a combination of onsite observation of approximately 25 studies supplemented by interactive observation of approximately 25 studies performed offsite and viewed by interactive video link. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during acquisition of the studies (i.e., patient selection, use of beta blockers) and to observe the steps in obtaining the scan by direct observation of the scanner console. The scans that were acquired during the week of the activity are anonymized and participants will interpret these studies on their own time following the five days of onsite training. After faculty review of the participants’ interpretation of these 50 studies and the other elements of the activity, a certificate documenting completion of these studies will be issued.

80042558 - Seventh Annual Johns Hopkins Spine Workshop
Friday, September 22, 2017 7:00 AM - Saturday, September 23, 2017 6:00 PM Vista Laboratories, Baltimore, MD

Specialties: Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery

DESCRIPTION

With safety as an utmost priority in spinal surgery, it is imperative that surgical trainees receive continual anatomical education. This is accomplished in the operating room while trainees learn on live patients. However, the safest way to learn is via cadaveric instruction. With the cost of health care increasing, the decrease in industry sponsored cadaveric courses due to political pressures against industry-sponsored medical education, and decreased working hours for physicians, such education is now at a premium. A spine cadaveric workshop is not only demanded but required in the current medical education so that surgeons can continue to be trained in safe and effective surgical techniques on the spine.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This activity is intended for spinal neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.

80042557 - Order Wisely: Best Practice Radiology for Ordering Providers
Sunday, October 8, 2017 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore, MD


In the transition to high value practice, imaging exams have been identified as contributors to unnecessary practice and patient health care debt.  Improving imaging appropriateness requires collaboration across specialties, educational campaigns, radiology consultation srvices and clinical decision support in the electronic medical record. At the core of these initiatives are the ACR Appropriateness Criteria (AC), evidence-based guidelines that indicate the relative utility of various imaging tests for more than 1,000 clinical indications.

To increase providers' knowledge about imaging appropriateness guidelines, subspecialty trained faculty leaders in the Johns Hopkins Department of Radiology will deliver a targeted educational program. The content of this program was driven by a survey of ordering providers, designed to identify clinical scenarios for which they needed imaging selection guidance. Survey responses identified 14 common clinical indications where providers reported knowledge deficiencies, which were integrated into this half day CME program.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for physician and non-physician medical providers who order imaging exams in all specialties, including faculty, house staff, medical students, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. House staff and students attend for free.

80040606 - National Research and Education Symposium - High Value Practice Academic Alliance
Sunday, October 8, 2017 5:00 PM - Monday, October 9, 2017 6:30 PM Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore, MD

Specialties: Multiple Specialties

DESCRIPTION
Research and education are integral to the transition to high value care. Outcomes research must ensure that cost-conscious care improves value without sacrificing quality or safety. Changing long-standing provider practice patterns is challenging, underscoring the importance of delineating interventions that most effectively influence prescribing and ordering behavior. Academic medical centers from across the United States and Canada will come together to celebrate high value care and describe quality improvement projects that have safely reduced low value practice through oral presentations and posters. The program will also include presentations from renowned faculty leaders in high value care. Additionally, presentations will focus on innovative curricula developed by academic medical centers for undergraduate and graduate medical education to instill high value practice in future generation of physicians.

80042628 - Fourth Percutaneous Tracheostomy and Advanced Airway Cadaver Course
Monday, October 9, 2017 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM MISTC Lab, Baltimore, MD

Specialties: Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary Disease

Multiple disciplines in medicine participate in the care of patients with airway difficulty. This range includes surgeons, intensivists, emergency medicine, anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, and respiratory therapists. As new technology and techniques develop there is often a lag in disseminating these skills and deficit in knowledge. This course will address very specific skill sets that will help clinicians improve management of their patients' care. Several performance improvement programs have been published from the Johns Hopkins experience including the difficult airway team and multi-disciplinary tracheostomy team. These programs continue to record measures of performance improvement.

Percutaneous procedures are a new option for patients to have minimally invasive procedures. Bronchoscopically guided percutaneous tracheostomy offers a bedside procedure for critically ill patients which eliminates the need for transport to an operating room, which is associated with a higher morbidity and mortality. In addition, there is a cost saving and more accurate technique to reduce complications such as stomal infections when compared to current open techniques for tracheostomy.

Direct laryngoscopy performed using traditional Macintosh and Miller blades is currently the standard of care for performing tracheal intubation. Video laryngoscopes (VLs) have been shown to improve glottis exposure and increase first-attempt success rates for tracheal intubation in both elective operating room and simulation-based settings when compared with the direct laryngoscope. Emergency airway management in critically ill patients outside the controlled setting of the Operating Room is associated with a higher incidence of difficult intubations, ranging anywhere from 10% to 22%, and also with increased risk of respiratory and hemodynamic complications, including death. Video laryngoscopy has recently been shown to improve glottic views and intubation success rates in pulmonary/ critical care practitioners specifically in patients with known difficult airway predictors. Currently, at Johns Hopkins pulmonary/ critical care trainees and practitioners do not receive training in VL, this is also true at many training centers due to a new technology which has not disseminated these skills. This course will allow for didactic learning and hands-on training with this new technology.

This full day course will begin with mini-didactic lectures of fundamental knowledge and panel case based discussions. The second half of the course will be focused on hands-on training with our faculty in small groups. This continuing medical education course is designed to provide participants with an interactive hands-on experience in percutaneous tracheostomy and advance airway devices using simulation models and cadavers. The lecturers and instructors are members of our multi-disciplinary faculty with formal training in a wide spectrum of procedures and techniques.

80042354 - Hot Topics in Body CT Scanning: What We Need to Know
Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Tuesday, October 24, 2017 5:00 PM Las Vegas, NV


Description
The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagno¬sis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols, to contrast injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the “room for error” has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring datasets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys or pancreas have changed with the role of multiphase acquisition and post processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practice skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a four-day period. The goal of the meeting is to improve your ability to do the best studies possible for optimal patient care in your own practice.

Friday, October 27, 2017 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM Johns Hopkins Tilghman Room, Baltimore, MD


The total number of people worldwide with diabetes mellitus is projected to rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030. In the United States, almost 24 million or 8 percent of the population has diabetes mellitus. Approximately 4.0 million Americans age 40 and older have diabetic retinopathy, 900,000 of whom have vision threatening disease, defined as pre-proliferative retinopathy, macular edema, or both. Diabetic retinopathy remains the leading cause of blindness in adults who make up the work force. Despite this, diabetic retinopathy and venous occlusive disease are often under-diagnosed and under-treated. This annual course highlights new information being reported by the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network and others, which will impact current standard care and management strategies.

Who Should Attend

This activity is intended for ophthalmologists, retina specialists, residents, fellows and other health care professionals.

If paying by check, please call the Customer Relations Office at 410-502-9636.

Interdisciplinary collaboration and coordination is vital to facilitate early mobility and rehabilitation in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. A recent stakeholders’ conference aimed at improving long-term outcomes for ICU survivors identified important ‘silos’ among critical care and rehabilitation clinicians working in the ICU, with these ‘silos’ acting as a barrier to collaboratively advancing the field and improving patient outcomes. While clinical trials support the benefits of early rehabilitation for mechanically ventilated patients, implementing these interventions requires creating a new ICU culture based on proactive rehabilitation and interdisciplinary collaboration between all critical care and rehabilitation clinicians. This course will bridge the interdisciplinary gap from research to clinical implementation at the bedside.

If you have not attended our Conference in prior years, we strongly recommend that you register for the appropriate pre-conferences, as per below, since these basic concepts will not be covered during the main conference.

We continue to see great advances in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal and liver disease. Therapy continues to evolve in multiple directions. There are constantly new medications being approved for chronic hepatitis C and inflammatory bowel disease in addition to new consensus and position statements on these topics. The line is also blurring between the traditional realms of endoscopy and surgery. We are now seeing novel endoscopic approaches to the complications of Barrett’s esophagus as well as endoscopic based bariatric surgery. To maintain their practices, gastroenterologists and surgeons need to stay up to date on a wide range of topics including diagnosis of autoimmune pancreatitis, understanding immunosuppression management in the post-liver transplant patient, delineating the role for surgical versus endoscopic approaches to gastric cancer, and treating the pregnant patient with elevated liver function tests, yet formal education in these areas is limited.  It is difficult for practicing physicians and surgeons to stay abreast of these new advances.  The 35th Annual Medical and Surgical Gastroenterology Conference will provide a learning opportunity for participants in various GI disorders including endoscopic/surgical approaches to pancreaticobiliary disease and esophageal/gastric disease, assessment of liver disease, and inflammatory bowel disease management. This year we will have a special session dedicated management of GI conditions in the pregnant patient. Also new this year, we have several pro-con debates on controversial GI dilemmas. The course is endorsed by the International Association of Surgeons, Gastroenterologists and Oncologists (IASCO), and we have six national and international leaders in the field of esophageal, gastric, colon and hepatobiliary cancer speaking at the meeting. We will continue to have a full day of interactive case presentations and attendees have the opportunity to earn maintenance of certification (MOC) points. Finally, we are happy to offer complimentary breakfast for all attendees.

80043674 - Perioperative Management - In Its 34th Year
Sunday, March 4, 2018 6:00 AM - Wednesday, March 7, 2018 2:00 PM Marco Island Marriott, Marco Island, FL


Now in our 34th Year!!! Over 500 attendees EVERY YEAR!

As the established leader in perioperative medicine, this course aims to provide practitioners with the most up-to-date knowledge necessary to deliver effective, evidence-based care by affecting healthcare practices at the level of the individual and the larger health system.

Thirty million patients undergo surgical procedures in the US each year, and the age and medical complexity of this patient population is increasing. All these patients require preoperative assessment, intraoperative management, and postoperative care. Every year the body of peer-reviewed literature on this topic increases and new guidelines on clinical management are formulated. Because the breadth of knowledge in perioperative medicine, which includes the diverse disciplines of surgery, anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, infectious diseases and geriatrics, is vast, many practitioners may not have up-to-date information that is critical to clinical practice. The curriculum for this course was specifically created to address the needs of clinicians who provide care for patients before, during, and after surgery based on literature review, recent research, feedback from course participants and the opinion of experts inside and outside Johns Hopkins. 
New this year, we will be offering an optional workshop- Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). Registration is limited and there will be an additional fee to attend. Please indicate your attendance on the registration form.

Who Should Attend: This activity is intended for anesthesiologists, internal medicine specialists, hospitalists, surgeons, family practitioners, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

This is a workstation-based training activity, designed to meet American College of Cardiology/ American Heart Association requirements. Each participant has their own workstation to use throughout the activity and receives personal attention and instruction by the activity faculty. A workstation which projects to the front of the room is used by instructors to demonstrate various aspects of CT interpretation. After receiving training on the use of the workstation, a library of cases selected to demonstrate the variety of pathology which can be evaluated by CT (coronary disease, bypass grafts, stents, anomalies, cardiomyopathies, EP, pericardial disease, cardiac tumors) is reviewed. A minimum of 100 cases are reviewed during the five days of the activity.


Twenty-four hours of didactic instruction are included through lectures and reading materials, which will cover topics of patient selection, preparation, radiation, contrast, cardiac anatomy, assessment of cardiac function, cardiac pathology, etc. Members of the Johns Hopkins faculty and guest faculty will present these topics. Participants will take a quiz to confirm understanding of these materials.


The requirement for observation of the acquisition of 50 studies is satisfied by utilizing a combination of onsite observation of approximately 25 studies supplemented by interactive observation of approximately 25 studies performed offsite and viewed by interactive video link. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during acquisition of the studies (i.e., patient selection, use of beta blockers) and to observe the steps in obtaining the scan by direct observation of the scanner console. The scans that were acquired during the week of the activity are anonymized and participants will interpret these studies on their own time following the five days of onsite training. After faculty review of the participants’ interpretation of these 50 studies and the other elements of the activity, a certificate documenting completion of these studies will be issued.

80040923 - 14th International Sjogren's Symposium
Wednesday, April 18, 2018 4:00 PM - Saturday, April 21, 2018 12:00 PM Capital Hilton Hotel, Washington, DC

Specialties: Family Practice, Ophthalmology, Rheumatology, Multiple Specialties, Academic/Research

Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a complex autoimmune disease with a substantial health impact. Beyond the effects on individual health, SS and its complications have an estimated annual economic impact of ~$35 billion in the U.S. alone. It is a heterogeneous autoimmune disorder affecting >4,000,000 individuals in the U.S. Moisture-producing glands are universally targeted by the immune system, including salivary and lacrimal glands. The extent to which exocrine glands are affected varies, but the autoimmune-mediated damage is often so severe that glandular tissue is irreversibly destroyed. Patients frequently develop serious complications that may include lymphoma, pulmonary dysfunction, neuropathy, and debilitating fatigue, among others. Diagnosing SS is a significant challenge and current therapies do little to interrupt pathogenic disease processes. Practitioners need to facilitate precision medicine practices in patient diagnosis, prognosis, therapeutic responses, and prevention to improve patient health outcomes and decrease morbidity.


This symposium is designed to facilitate precision medicine practices in all aspects of clinical care, including patient diagnosis, prognosis, therapeutic responses, and prevention. This pioneering conference specifically seeks to bring together leaders from the Sjögren's syndrome/autoimmune research community to enhance translation of novel discoveries into clinical practice. Practitioners must embrace the advances and new technology to ensure their practice evolves with the field, ultimately improving patient care, quality and safety. Based on recent research, literature review, faculty perception, expert opinion and reviews from previous activity evaluation and outcome survey data, this 2.5 day activity will bring together science, technology, evidence-based medicine and leaders in the field to provide updates to an international audience, narrowing the gaps in knowledge.


Participants from academia, industry, and government funding agencies are expected to attend. We expect at least a third of our attendees to be from outside the U.S., in part because the Sjögren’s research community is traditionally very international in nature. Our invited speakers and abstract submissions reflect this international composition. We believe this is especially exciting and important for enhancing international recognition for scientific leadership.


Who Should Attend?
This activity is intended for rheumatologists, ophthalmologists, oral medicine specialists, and other healthcare providers interested in Sjögren’s Syndrome and related disease states.

80043934 - Hot Topics in Body CT Scanning: What You Need to Know
Saturday, May 5, 2018 6:00 AM - Tuesday, May 8, 2018 5:00 PM Sheraton Music City Hotel, Nashville, TN


Description
The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagno¬sis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols, to contrast injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the “room for error” has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring datasets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys or pancreas have changed with the role of multiphase acquisition and post processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practice skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a four-day period. The goal of the meeting is to improve your ability to do the best studies possible for optimal patient care in your own practice. 

Who Should Attend
This activity is intended for radiologists and radiologic technologists.
