80043389 - Current Practices and Future Directions in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, The 15th Year
Thursday, August 10, 2017 7:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Sunday, August 13, 2017 12:00 PM The Meritage, Napa, CA

Specialties: Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary Disease

More than 52 million Americans are living with chronic lung disease such as asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis and pulmonary fibrosis. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) surpassed estimates and became the third leading cause of death in the United States, responsible for one in ten deaths. Chronic lung diseases caused an estimated 149,200 deaths in 2015, with lung cancer causing an additional 162,500 deaths in 2015. According to the CDC to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health statistics, deaths from Chronic lower respiratory disease increased significantly from 2014 to 2015, with 41.6/100,000 deaths being attributed to chronic lower respiratory disease in 2015 (up from 40.5/100,000 in 2014). Not only are these conditions prevalent and morbid, the care results in considerable healthcare utilization and cost. The economic cost of COPD alone was $36 billion in 2014: $32.1 billion in direct health expenditures and $3.9 billion in absenteeism. In addition to being prevalent and morbid, chronic lung disease has become increasingly complex to manage given the overlay with comorbid disease and advancements in diagnostic modalities and therapeutic options. In 2015, 9 new drugs were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the management of chronic pulmonary diseases, and 3 additional new drugs were approved for lung diseases in 2016, ranging from COPD and asthma to Cystic Fibrosis (CF), lung cancer and pulmonary arterial hypertension. The recent burgeoning of anticoagulant therapies has resulted in new guidelines addressing the use of the many newly available medications for the various thromboembolism diagnoses.

Therefore, there is considerable need for greater education among caregivers to aid in the diagnosis and management of lung disease and critical illness. Further, given that the prevalence of diseases such as COPD are so high in the general population, it is of utmost importance to ensure that primary care doctors have access to up to date and impactful information about screening for and treatment of lung disease, such as that found in the extensive and newly updated Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) guidelines, which changed the algorithm for grading the severity of COPD and prescribing therapy, including the addition of new treatments in this algorithm. Based on these needs and efforts, the Johns Hopkins Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine presents Current Practices and Future Directions in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine: The 15th Year. This review course has been specifically designed to review the most recent innovations in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine for the practicing physician, focusing on the importance of the primary care physician as the gateway to the diagnosis and treatment of lung disease.

80040118 - Johns Hopkins Myocardial CT Perfusion Practicum: From Anatomy to Physiology(SEPT 2017)
Thursday, September 14, 2017 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM - Saturday, September 16, 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.

Saturday, September 30, 2017 - Sunday, October 1, 2017 Harrahs Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV

Specialties: Radiology, Radiologic Tech

DESCRIPTION
The field of MRI is rapidly changing. Significant improvements have been made in safety in the MRI environment, including contrast administration safety. In addition, the role of novel PET/MR machines continues to evolve and could potentially change the way we practice imaging. The role of Breast MRI in screening high risk patients continues to grow and technologists need to be comfortable with performing these imaging studies. It is crucial that technologists and other radiology staff receive updates and education in the latest MRI technology, not only to maintain their national license requirement but to be able to provide the best care to patients and properly address safety issues with MRI. The one way to accomplish these goals is to provide an annual CME-type imaging seminar where we can select leaders in the field of MRI to discuss the changes, and how these changes impact the delivery of patient care.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for MRI Technologists and Radiologists.

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.

Sunday, October 8, 2017 5:00 PM - 6:30 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.

80043046 - Fast Track Musculoskeletal MRI with Interactive Case Reviews
Friday, October 27, 2017 7:00 AM - 1:30 PM - Saturday, October 28, 2017 1:30 PM Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD


DESCRIPTION

The rapid evolution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has impacted many aspects of musculoskeletal medicine and orthopedic surgery. The development of new MRI scanners and pulse sequences now allows for the clinical application of rapid 2D and 3D MRI of joints, high resolution MR neurography, multiparametric morphological and functional MRI of musculoskeletal neoplasms, and metal artifact reduction MRI of arthroplasty and orthopedic implants with unprecedented quality, detail, and speed. While those new and exciting clinical applications require a solid understanding of the underlying techniques, familiarity with current concepts and terminology of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine are equally essential. This activity will provide you with an improved understanding of the current possibilities of musculoskeletal MRI and its role in today’s practice. It will help to improve your practice skills and knowledge base from initial diagnosis to post-operative imaging. The program is a modern mix of pairs of interactive presentations and instructed live case reviews with MRI data sets displayed on your own devices. Experienced speakers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Balgrist University Hospital in Zürich, Switzerland will explain proven and new concepts first and then review illustrative cases interactively. The goal of this activity is to improve your ability to perform the best possible MRI exam and most accurate MRI interpretation for optimal patient care in your own practice.

Interactive Case Review Sessions

This course will feature 12 interactive case review sessions. After each lecture, you will review cases on your device together with the faculty. The cases will be available on a local PACS system that can be accessed via standard browser apps of your own handheld devices such as iphones, ipads, android phones and tablets, as well as PC and MAC laptops. Each faculty will review 5-10 cases and highlight protocol features, explain their structured approach, and illustrate abnormalities and their implications for patients care.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, and MRI technologists.

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.

Target Audience

Physical Therapists, Respiratory Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and Psychologists.

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.
