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.

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.

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.

The traditional battle-hardening culture of medical education is ineffective and harmful to learners and faculty alike. Nearly 60% of UW GME residents surveyed in March 2018 were burned out. The much needed culture shift in our institutions can begin with physicians practicing the skills of identifying and sharing your concerns, being supportive of your colleagues, and taking small concrete steps towards personal resilience. This module offers you realistic scenarios, relevant self-assessment, and links to additional tools and resources.
