DELIRIUM PREVENTION: STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Delirium is a common complication within the hospital setting with nearly one in three older patients experiencing it during hospitalization. Reduction in delirium is associated with decreased falls, decreased distress of patients and caregivers, and decreased length of stay as a result. Identification and reduction of delirium, therefore, is of the utmost importance to […]

ECOSPOR-III: A PHASE 3 DOUBLE-BLIND, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED RANDOMIZED TRIAL OF SER-109 AN INVESTIGATIONAL MICROBIOME THERAPEUTIC FOR RECURRENT CLOSTRIDIOIDES DIFFICILE INFECTION
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Antibiotics targeted against C. difficile bacteria are necessary, but insufficient, to achieve a durable clinical response because they have no effect on C. difficile spores that germinate within a disrupted microbiome. ECOSPOR-III evaluated SER-109, an investigational, biologically-derived microbiome therapeutic of purified Firmicute spores for treatment of recurrent CDI. Methods: Adults ≥18 years with recurrent […]

IMPLEMENTATION OF A HOSPITAL MEDICINE PROCEDURE SERVICE: 5-YEAR EXPERIENCE OF AN ACADEMIC MEDICAL CENTER
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Procedural complications are a common source of adverse events in hospitalized patients(1, 2). In academic centers, bedside procedures have traditionally been performed by trainees, often without experienced proceduralist supervision, or referred to interventional radiology or consultant services, often with an associated delay in procedure performance. Many trainees report discomfort with their skill in performing […]

MEASURING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CHOOSING WISELY CAMPAIGN (MC2 STUDY)
SHM Converge 2021
Background: The Choosing Wisely Campaign started in 2012 with the aim of promoting high-value care. On its Choosing Wisely List, the Society of Hospital Medicine cited daily basic metabolic panel (BMP) and complete blood count (CBC) testing in the absence of clinical suspicion as unnecessary practice. Since the implementation of Choosing Wisely, there have been […]

MENTAL HEALTH OUTCOMES AFTER HOSPITALIZATION WITH OR WITHOUT COVID-19
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Survivors of hospitalization for COVID-19 are potentially at high risk for subsequent psychiatric morbidity due to medical trauma, systemic inflammation, and potential neurotropism of SARS-CoV-2(1). In addition, social isolation during the hospital stay due to restrictive visitor policies and after discharge due to fears of contagion or stay-at-home orders could further increase psychiatric vulnerability […]
