When to admit as inpatient and when not to? Physicians must determine the correct patient status based on medical necessity and properly document it in the medical record. UW Medicine is increasingly in the position to defend its documentation and has had to repay millions of dollars of inpatient claims over the past few years because of medicalnecessity-related concerns. All UW Medicine physicians who admit patients into the hospital will find this eLearning helpful in bolstering our collective effort to improve documentation and reduce the volume of repayment requests.

ACGME CLER requirement: Health Care Quality, Patient Safety

CVC training is designed to rapidly orient physicians to a standard method for central venous catheter (CVC) placement into the superior vena cava. CVC placement is a skill that all physicians who care for acutely ill patients will find useful. While CVC has a number of indications, it also presents significant risks for the patient during catheter insertion and while the catheter is in use. To help improve outcomes of CVC placement, UW Medicine and WISH (WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare) have devised a short program with two parts:

  1. Two online courses (Central Venous Catheter Overview and CVC for Practitioners) to orient learners to the bestpractices and key procedural steps in CVC placement.
  2. A hands-on training program on a simulator that applies the procedure learned in the online training module, for those residents who will be responsible for CVC placement and management. WISH (WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare) schedules and manages this training in collaboration with the GME Programs.

Empowers learners to ask for feedback with an easy-to-use feedback framework. Learners first identify their coaches—attendings, peers, or other individuals in their learning environments—share the feedback framework with them, and then capture the most salient feedback points for next steps. The online portion takes less than five minutes to complete; at the end of the module, learners are directed to the ADAPT Feedback Tool to capture of the most useful suggestions. Three repetitions of the feedback process in the clinical learning environment is recommended.

Opioid safety is a growing concern in medicine. Opioid analgesics rank among the drugs most frequently associated with adverse drug events. Some causes for adverse events associated with opioid use are lack of knowledge about differences among opioids, improper prescribing and administration of multiple opioids and modes of administration and inadequate monitoring of patients on opioids. This module is aimed at helping promote opioid safety through a series of scenarios that take the learner through the opioid management process, exposing the learners to best practices for opioid prescribing for adult acute pain patients in the hospital setting.
