The course is co-sponsored by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and the Cleveland Clinic in collaboration with the Society for Perioperative Assessment and Quality Improvement (SPAQI).
The goal of the Summit is to enable clinicians who are actively engaged in perioperative medical care to incorporate the latest findings from clinical research into their practices so that they can improve the quality and safety of their medical care.
Evidence-based lectures will be supplemented by
clinical cases and an Audience Response System will be used for exchange of information among faculty and attendees. A dedicated 15 minute Q&A session after each presentation has been a highlight of this Summit.
In addition, clinical and lab research, innovations and clinical vignettes related to perioperative medicine will be selected for presentation.
Internists, hospitalists, family practitioners,
anesthesiologists, physician assistants,
certified nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners and allied health professionals engaged in management of the perioperative patient.
At the completion of the Summit, attendees will be able to:
â€¢ Utilize current guidelines and best practices to manage evidence-based perioperative medical care of surgical patients.
â€¢ Assess perioperative risk by incorporating the patientâ€™s history, exam, testing, algorithms and clinical prediction tools.
â€¢ Integrate cost-effective perioperative testing into practice.
â€¢ Identify and apply therapies that reduce the
common postoperative complications.
