Hours
  • An immersion weekend with two goals in mind. The first is to teach clinicians the necessary action steps that are required to start a PSH or Enhanced Recovery After Surgery model. The second goal is to achieve proficiency in the recognition and management of common medical problems encountered throughout the perioperative journey.
     
  • Instruction by a small, select cadre of transdisciplinary educators/clinicians. The faculty represent multiple disciplines and have been specially chosen for their ability to communicate effectively, their knowledge and enthusiasm for the area and prior experience working with the Perioperative Surgical Home and Enhanced Recovery After Surgery models.
     
  • 26 fast-paced & concise 30-minute presentations. A refreshing break from long lectures, topics are presented concisely in rapid sequence to maximize one’s attention and retention of information.
     
  • 8 question & answer sessions with the faculty.  Receive clarification and expanded information on material presented throughout each day.
     
  • A focus on essential content.  No ”fluff” or “nice to know” material to distract from retention of core material. Just the “nuts and bolts.”
     
  • Enrollment is limited to 100 people. An intimate learning and networking atmosphere.

About the Conference

We are delighted to announce the first PSH-ERAS Boot Camp continuing medical education will be held September 17-18, 2016 in Washington D.C..  This boot camp course was developed by Dr. Kain, who is the founder of the Perioperative Surgical Home Summit, in direct response to clinical institutions contacting us to learn more about the actual implementation of the PSH-ERAS models.

The PSH-ERAS Boot Camp is intended to focus on the operational and clinical foundation of building and maintaining a PSH and ERAS program.  The first day of the program will be devoted solely to the "nuts and bolts" of setting up a PSH-ERAS program and the second day will focus on essential topics in perioperative medicine.  The course will feature a collaborative faculty from the disciplines of Anesthesiology, Hospital Medicine and Surgery from organizations such as Stanford, UCSF, University of Michigan, University of Alabama and UCI.  Of interest is that several of the speakers are private practice anesthesiologists who have actually implemented these models.

Enrollment is limited to 100 participants to enhance the learning and networking atmosphere and teams that include nurses, physicians and hospital executives are highly encouraged.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Anesthesiologists
  • Hospitalists
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Residents and fellows
  • OR Directors

Conference Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the participants should be better able to:

  • Build the business plan and return of investments (ROI) for a PSH-ERAS model at their own institutions.
  • Discuss the fundamentals of a PSH project management plan and exploring process improvement methodologies.
  • Learning how to gain access to data and fundamentals of Information Technology.
  • Identify the right metrics for a successful PSH-ERAS model and build dashboards for both operational and executive needs.
  • Be able to identify barriers between best practice and possible; SIPOC, Process Maps.
  • Discuss the need to build clinical pathways and order sets as part of the PSH model.
  • Recognize the fundamentals of optimization, risk stratification and prehabilitation of patients before surgery.
  • Achieve proficiency in the recognition and management of common medical problems commonly encountered in the perioperative patient.
  • Outline the principles and implementation of Enhanced Recover After Surgery (ERAS) and goal-directed therapy (GDT).
  • Evaluate special considerations of postoperative fever, hospital acquired infections and sepsis (CLABSI, CAUTI).
  • Identify the emerging issues in the management of fall prevention, PT/OT strategies, safe early ambulation.
  • Evaluate the guidelines and or best practices of early nutrition and early mobilization.
  • Discuss the importance of preventing readmissions and basics of Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) care.
