Specialties: Cardiovascular Disease, Radiology, Radiologic Tech


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.

Who Should Attend
This activity is intended for physicians including cardiologists, radiologists, and nuclear specialists who are currently in practice or are in a fellowship, seeking Level II competency training. For those who have already qualified for Level II, this added experience will meet the case requirements for Level III.

80040444 - Cancer Survivorship: Improving Outcomes and Enhancing Patient-Centered Care
Friday, April 28, 2017 9:15 AM - 4:30 PM Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD


DESCRIPTION
Driven by the aging of the U.S. population, earlier detection, and improved treatment modalities, the number of cancer survivors is expected to sharply rise. There are currently 15 million cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today. While many cancer patients will survive their disease well beyond the initial diagnosis and treatment, their medical and psychosocial needs post-treatment are often inadequately handled.

Care for cancer survivors requires multidisciplinary support. There are often many providers involved in the management of a cancer patient after acute treatment. Finding creative ways for these individuals to work together is of critical importance to ensure cancer survivors have access to necessary health and wellness opportunities and potentially improve outcomes. The Johns Hopkins Cancer Survivorship: Improving Outcomes and Promoting Patient- Centered Care symposium is designed to provide health care practitioners a comprehensive overview of the medical and psychosocial aspects of cancer survivorship care, including approaches to clinical management.

80042870 - Lyme Disease Topics at Johns Hopkins
Friday, June 2, 2017 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM Mt. Washington Conference Center, Baltimore, MD


Lyme disease affects over 300,000 new patients every year which are clustered in and around the major metropolitan regions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States. Timely diagnosis of acute Lyme disease depends on the accurate identification of the early erythema migrans skin lesion. Untreated, Lyme disease can progress to disseminated infection involving the nervous system, heart, and joints.

Antibiotic treatment of Lyme disease is effective in resolving the objective manifestations of infection, however a subset of patients develop persistent symptoms called post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS). Experts from Johns Hopkins have carefully described the patient symptoms, physical findings and laboratory finding in a well document case series of patients with PTLDS.

The diagnosis of all manifestations of Lyme disease and PTLDS in the clinical practice of medicine is challenging and this course seeks to provide education to health practitioners who may see patients with the spectrum of illness associated with Lyme disease and PTLDS.

80040118JUNE - Johns Hopkins Myocardial CT Perfusion Practicum: From Anatomy to Physiology (Jun)
Monday, June 12, 2017 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM - Wednesday, June 14, 2017 5:00 PM Johns Hopkins Bayview, Baltimore, MD

Specialties: Cardiovascular Disease, Diagnostic Radiology, Radiology, Radiologic Tech


Description
Myocardial CT perfusion imaging is a new 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 two times per year 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 myocardial CT perfusion imaging in conjunction with the coronary CT angiograms with correlations to radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging, MRI perfusion images, 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. Each 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 MRI perfusion imaging. At the completion of training, participants will be provided a certificate documenting completion of the course.

Who Should Attend
This activity is intended for Cardiologists and Radiologists who are currently in practice or are in fellowship who are seeking training in the performance and interpretation of myocardial CT perfusion images. While Level II experience in coronary CTA is not required as a prerequisite for the course, it is highly recommended. Coronary CT angiograms will be reviewed throughout the course, but the course will not focus on training in the evaluation of Coronary CTA. It will be assumed that the student will have the skills required to read coronary CTA. Participants may use the course to continue training toward Level III training in coronary CTA.

Thursday, June 15, 2017 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM - Sunday, June 18, 2017 5:00 PM ARIA Hotel, Las Vegas, NV


Description
The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagnosis 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.

80042619 - Neuro-ophthalmology for the Clinician: A Practical Approach
Friday, September 1, 2017 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Turner Auditorium, Baltimore, MD


Patients with neurological and neurosurgical disorders, such as brain tumors, aneurysms, infections, inflammations, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and stroke may present with visual disturbances. If the correct diagnosis is made, sight can often be saved or double vision eliminated; if not, bilateral blindness, permanent diplopia, or even death may result. This one-day course will use a case-based approach presented by expert faculty to focus on the diagnosis and management of patients with a variety of such “neuro-ophthalmologic” disorders. Special emphasis will be placed on presenting symptoms and signs as well as appropriate ancillary tests that can lead the clinician, whether ophthalmologist, optometrist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, or internist, to the correct diagnosis and, from there, to the appropriate treatment in a timely fashion. Ample time will be reserved for questions and comments from the audience.

Who Should Attend

This activity is intended for General Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Ophthalmology and Neurology Residents, Ophthalmology and Neurology Fellows and Optometry Residents.

Credit Designation Statement

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Specialties: General Practice

Description

Part 1 of Teaching Skills enables participants to explore concepts and learn skills related to teaching and relationship-building with medical trainees, patients, and colleagues. Concepts are generally presented in total group sessions among all participants. However, most of the course time is spent in collaborative learning groups of 6-8 participants with 1-2 facilitators who stay together throughout the course. Individuals bring teaching challenges to the group, use reflection, dialogue, and feedback to get others’ perspectives, practice the skills being learned, and observe others. Part 2 of Teaching Skills is individualized to participant needs and is based upon their experience from Part 1. Participants continue to apply and deepen concepts and skills learned in Part 1, while addressing new content areas. As in Part 1, most of the course time is spent in collaborative learning groups of 6-8 participants with 1-2 facilitators who stay together throughout the course.

80042628 - Fourth Annual 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.

There have been great advances in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. In the last year alone there have been more than 19,000 papers published on liver disease and over 4,000 papers   published on inflammatory bowel disease. Basic treatment paradigms for common gastrointestinal conditions such as chronic hepatitis C are in flux as new classes of pharmaceuticals become available and even diseases without prior therapies have been reappraised with new recommendations and consensus guidelines. To maintain their practices, gastroenterologist and surgeons may need to be up to date on topics such as the ideal approach to the difficult polypectomy or the stubborn biliary stricture, endoscopic management of Barrett’s esophagus, restorative proctocolectomy in ulcerative colitis, or exploration of total pancreatectomy with autoislet cell transplantation in patients with chronic pancreatitis – yet formal education in these areas is limited. It is hard for practicing physicians to obtain the knowledge needed 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 an assessment of new technologies, diagnostic and therapeutic options for inflammatory bowel disease, esophageal disorders, hepatopancreaticobiliary disease, liver disorders and other areas of clinical challenge. In addition, this year there will be a special session on colorectal cancer, interactive case presentations, and the opportunity to earn maintenance of certification (MOC) points.
