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.

80042868 - 35th Annual Medical and Surgical Gastroenterology: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Sunday, January 28, 2018 3:00 PM - Thursday, February 1, 2018 8:00 PM Vail Marriott, Vail, CO

Specialties: Family Practice, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Nursing, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant

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.

80042923 - Edmund G. Beacham 45th Annual Current Topics in Geriatrics
Thursday, February 8, 2018 6:00 AM - Saturday, February 10, 2018 1:00 PM Marriott Camden Yards Inner Harbor Hotel, Baltimore, MD


Description
The aging of the American population is well known and significantly impacts many aspects of health care needs and delivery. Most physicians have received very little or no formal geriatrics training, despite this growing trend in the number of elderly patients they care for. Surveys demonstrate that physicians commonly report discomfort and dissatisfaction with providing care to the elderly. Further, studies evaluating standard quality indicators for the care of the vulnerable elderly show quite poor quality of care. Elderly patients with multiple co-morbidities report high rates of dissatisfaction with their health care.

This activity is designed to provide practical information to clinicians and healthcare professionals who care for elderly patients. It will improve knowledge about diseases and syndromes common in the elderly and offer practical and effective guides to their management.

80043956 - 18th Annual Hot Topics in MR Imaging for the Technologist
Saturday, February 24, 2018 7:55 AM - Sunday, February 25, 2018 5:00 PM Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Turner Auditorium, Baltimore, MD


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.
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


Perioperative Management - In Its 34th Year

Over 500 attendees EVERY YEAR! Register with a friend and save $75 each off registration. Please call (410) 502-9636 for instructions to register with a friend.

New this year, we will be offering an optional Point of Care Ultrasound Workshop (POCUS).

Description:

One hundred million patients undergo surgical procedures in the U.S. 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. 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.

Who Should Attend: 

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

Genetics has rapidly become integral to the evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of neurodevelopmental disabilities. Modern techniques now allow identification of genetic etiologies in as many as 40% of patients with developmental disabilities. The potential benefits in identifying comorbidities, prognostication, and counseling are clear; the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Neurology, and American College of Medical Genetics all now recommend high-resolution chromosomal microarray testing as first-line evaluation for intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder. Regardless, there remain significant financial and practical barriers to obtaining this testing. Further, output of these complex tests produce results that can be unexpected and difficult to interpret even for experienced clinicians. Many non-genetics clinicians do not feel equipped to interpret results and articulate a need for further education. The advent and gaining utilization of even higher-resolution techniques such as whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing will further compound this problem over coming years.

Once a genetic variant is identified, incorporating rapidly evolving information from testing into comprehensive care and counseling remains challenging. The number of recognized contributing variants is rapidly growing. In order to make use of the wealth of data now available and to realize the promise of individualized medicine, clinicians must become familiar with the tools and concepts needed to navigate the new genetic information landscape.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for pediatricians, genetic counselors, neuro-developmentalists, developmental behavioral pediatricians, child neurologists, child psychiatrists, educators, nurses, nurse practititioners, occupational therapists, psychologists, speech language pathologists, physical therapists, physician assistants and social workers.

DESCRIPTION
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.

Optional Ultrasound Workshop (limited): $150

Ultrasonography of the major salivary glands has emerged as an important technique for the evaluation of individuals with Sjögren’s syndrome. The structural abnormalities of the glands, elucidated with bedside ultrasonography, have a high degree of specificity for disease diagnosis and can be monitored as a parameter of glandular disease in clinical trials. This 4-hour course will feature key investigators who have pioneered and validated this imaging technique in Sjögren’s syndrome. The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with both up-to-date information on the utility and validity of ultrasonography in Sjögren’s syndrome and the opportunity to practice salivary gland ultrasonography on patient volunteers and scoring ultrasound examinations with direct faculty guidance.

  Workshop Objectives:

  -Describe the utility of major salivary gland ultrasonography in the evaluation of patients with Sjögren’s syndrome and other forms of sialadenitis.

  -Perform major salivary gland ultrasonography on a patient with Sjögren’s syndrome, identifying the key abnormalities.

  -Score the observed abnormalities according to accepted international schema.

  -Recognize the utility of ultrasonography to guide fine needle and core needle biopsies of the major salivary glands in the evaluation of enlargement and solitary masses.

Decatur House, 748 Jackson Place NW, Washington, DC 20006

Website: https://www.whitehousehistory.org/decatur-house

Historic Decatur House is one of the oldest surviving homes in Washington, D.C., and one of only three remaining houses in the country designed by neoclassical architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe. Completed in 1818 for naval hero Stephen Decatur and his wife, Susan, the Federal Style house is prominently located across Lafayette Square from the White House. It was successively home to Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren and Edward Livingston, who collectively made Decatur House the unofficial residence of the Secretary of State from 1827 to 1833, each renting the house while they served in that post.

In 1836, John Gadsby and his wife Providence moved into the house and brought their house slaves. They built a two-story structure at the back which became the slave quarters for those workers, who previously lived in the main house. This structure remains as one of the few examples of slave quarters in urban areas. It is physical evidence of African Americans having been held "in bondage in sight of the White House.

The Decatur House is a short, 7-minute walk from the Capital Hilton. Just go south on 16th Street NW for two blocks, turn right on H Street NW and the Decatur House will be on your right.

Due to the prime location downtown (one block from the White House on Lafayette Square & H Street, NW), Decatur House does not have its own facility to offer to event guests. However, several garages are located within walking distance of the museum. Street parking is another option and is used often and easily, especially on weekends or after 6:30 p.m. on weekday evenings.

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.

80042357 - Hopkins Pediatric Regional Anesthesia Workshop: Live Demo on Standardized Patients and Interactive Training on Phantoms
Saturday, June 16, 2018 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD



DESCRIPTION
The use of ultrasound imaging techniques in anesthesia is rapidly becoming an area of intense interest to those involved in the field of perioperative care. Ultrasound imaging techniques will increase the provider confidence and lead to more reliable peripheral nerve blocks. There is increasing evidence that ultrasound guidance is increasing block success rate over nerve stimulations techniques. Further, the block quality resulting from ultrasound guidance has led to a marked decrease in both intra-operative and post-operative opioid usage.

PNB administration is relatively new, the majority of currently practicing anesthesia providers are not trained in its use. With the increased use and availability of ultrasound machines, many more regional anesthesia techniques are utilized and newer techniques are being incorporated. At most institutions, nerve block training is taught via lectures and live scans on a standardized patient, however, the use of needles for a nerve block is not taught We often see a learning gap of using needle and probe. In this workshop, we are not only focused on illustrating lectures and live scans on patients, we also focus on using phantoms of each block so participants can practice blocks in real time.
