Health Care Ethics and Safety: A Quality Case for Consumer Engagement*

  • CDR
$0.00 Building a culture of health and well-being for those we care for means promoting compassionate, high-quality, efficient and person-centered care. When individuals and their families believe that we place their well-being at the center of what we do, there is a greater likelihood that outcomes will improve. In acute care settings, this might mean greater treatment adherence, shorter lengths of stay and fewer medication errors. However, HCPs often experience significant compassion fatigue and may dismiss compassion as less important than other aspects of care.
Closing the Gap in Health Equity

  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 In the United States, racial/ethnic minority, rural, and low-income populations continue to experience suboptimal access to and inequity of health care despite decades of recognition of health disparities and policy mandates to eliminate them. There are a number of disease states with recognized disparities and many health care interventions designed to achieve health equity fall short due to gaps in knowledge and translation.
Have We Achieved Pareto Optimality or Pareto Efficiency in Transplantation
  • Transplantation

  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Pareto optimality is a formally defined concept used to judge the efficiency of a distribution when shared goods or resources are allocated to many. Pareto efficiency occurs when all resources are exhausted, and any change in allocation will make at least one party worse off. During this activity, Dr. Abecassis will discuss similarities and differences between Pareto optimality, equity, and social optimality in order to provide a conceptual framework to better understand the dynamics and behaviors we are currently witnessing in national debates around liver allocation.
The Fight Against the Opioid Epidemic

  • Attendance
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Opioid abuse is a serious public health issue. Drug overdose is a leading cause of injury death in the United States, and there is a clear correlation between opioid-prescribing rates and overdose death rates. This fact accentuates the importance of prescribing guidelines that encourage the use of opioids only when benefits outweigh risks and that promote safe use when opioids are needed.
Metabolic Surgery and Transplantation

  • Attendance
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Obesity in transplantation has become prevalent and presents a difficult dilemma for transplant programs. Many transplant centers consider obesity a relative contraindication for transplant due to the associated risks of surgical complications. There are limited clinical alternatives for the management of obesity in the transplant patient other than metabolic surgery, diet and exercise. This activity will discuss the safety and efficacy of metabolic surgery, including the sustainability of weight control over the long term and its effect on posttransplant weight gain.
The Impact of Frailty on Posttransplant Outcomes
  • Transplantation

  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Frailty impacts various general aspects of health care and, in particular, organ transplantation, including patient selection, waitlist management and treatment posttransplant. In general, frailty has been characterized by a compromised physiological reserve. In comparison to healthy aging, inflammatory markers and cytokines are increased in frail older adults. Thus, modifications of the immune response, in addition to physical limitations and changes of metabolism, are likely to impact outcomes after transplantation.
