The Hospitalist (Vol 17, Issue 5)

The Hospitalist show

Summary: This month in our issue, dermatologists share 15 things they think hospitalists need to know about dermatologic conditions, hospital leaders discuss how competition between hospitalists can improve the performance of hospital medicine groups, and we offer strategies for maximizing your time spent learning and networking at the Society of Hospital Medicine’s upcoming conference, HM13, being held May 16th through 19th in Washington, D.C. Our key clinical section this month covers treating common end-of-life symptoms, we look at how the Surviving Sepsis campaign was updated in 2012, and we review results of a recent study that shows how tracheostomy collars facilitate patient transition off ventilators.
