  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 For Hispanic/Latino individuals, not having a Spanish-speaking health care professionals to help guide them through the transplant process can mean unnecessary suffering and even death. Having a transplant program tailored for the Hispanic and Latino communities with a bilingual team of surgeons, nurses, social workers, transplant specialists, and support staff can make life-saving surgeries more accessible by removing cultural and linguistic barriers.
Integrating Telemedicine into Health Care Delivery for the Transplant Population

  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Telemedicine has continued to grow as a unique way of delivering care to patients, while greatly improving access, reducing cost and positively impacting quality. Dr. Mulligan has been incorporating telehealth in the form of videoconferencing into the transplant setting, thus saving patients the effort of traveling to their follow-up appointments, taking time off work and avoiding potential exposure to other patients while they have a weakened immune system. With a focus on patients that undergo transplantation, Dr.
Metabolic Surgery and Transplantation
  • Transplantation

  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • 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.
Sickle Cell Disease: Panel Discussion
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common inherited hemoglobin disorder, affecting 70,000–100,000 people in the U.S. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) is currently the only curative treatment for severe SCD that offers excellent long-term survival, but access is limited for several reasons, including donor availability, as well as sociocultural and economic barriers.
The Impact of Frailty on Posttransplant Outcomes
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • 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.
Transitioning from Pediatric to Adult Transplant Care for Solid Organ Transplants
  • Pediatrics
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 The transition of health care for adolescents with solid organ transplants as they move into adult-centered services has become more significant over recent years as survival has improved. Since the transfer process from pediatric to adult care can be a challenging phase for transplant recipients, their families, and providers, transition planning should begin at an early age and be an integral component of their ongoing care. This activity will address the potential challenges and psychosocial factors associated with transitioning from pediatric to adult transplant care.
Minimally Invasive Surgery for Colectomy
  • Disease Management
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
$0.00 During this webcast, learners will compare the differences between traditional “open” surgery and minimally invasive colectomies (MICs). Additionally, they will review the risk of complications, recovery time and financial outcomes and evaluate the benefits of reducing the length of stay in the hospital. They will also become familiar with the type of patient who is eligible for minimally invasive surgical interventions.Learning objectives At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Nonpharmaceutical Management of Behavioral Issues in Older Adults
  • Behavioral health
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
  • NAB
$0.00 With the aging of the U.S. population, there is a need for increased behavioral health services. Dementia is the leading cause of dependence and disability in the elderly population worldwide, and, as the average life expectancy increases, the prevalence of dementia is expected to increase exponentially.
The Role of the Health Care Team in Solving the Opioid Epidemic
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • APA
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 The misuse of and addiction to opioids is a serious national crisis affecting public health as well as social and economic welfare. This crisis has devastating consequences and the number of opioid overdoses per year has quadrupled since 1999.
Minimally Invasive Lung Surgery
  • Disease Management
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
$0.00 During this webcast, learners will evaluate the differences between open and minimally invasive lung lobectomy including effectiveness, complications, oncologic efficacy, quality and financial outcomes as well as the latest techniques for video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. Additionally, they will become familiar with the types of patients who are eligible for minimally invasive surgical interventions and will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions across the spectrum of stages of lung cancer.
