What’s new in ACP Hospitalist

From the September ACP Internist, copyright 2009 by the American College of Physicians

Internists considering or actively planning a switch to hospital medicine can subscribe for free upon request to ACP Hospitalist, the College’s monthly magazine reporting on trends in hospital medicine. Featured in the current issue:

Nutritional support. Think of food as a drug a therapy that’s critical to helping hospitalized patients get better. On average, patients on enteral feeding get only half the nutritional support they need. You wouldn’t provide only half a patient’s antibiotics, so why overlook feeding? Also, test yourself with the MKSAP quiz on nutrition.

August’s issue of ACP Hospitalist features...

August’s issue of ACP Hospitalist features articles on nutritional support, working with temporary surgeons and avoiding the common causes of medical mistakes.

Who’s this temporary surgeon? With general surgeons in increasingly short supply, more hospitals will have to bring in temporary surgeons to help fill the demand. As locum tenens pass through the operating room, hospitalists increasingly will be caring for their patients.

Avoid medical mistakes. Practical tips for dealing with interruptions, haste, distractions and multitasking that lead to dire medical consequences.

ACP Hospitalist is distributed free of charge to individuals involved in hospital medicine. For a free subscription, contact ACP Customer Service at 800-523-1546 or 215-351-2600 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET) or send an e-mail. To subscribe, request ACP Hospitalist using promo code GAD.
