The Washington University PE Protocol: Lessons Learned in Two Decades
In 1997, I had the fear of doing the first pulmonary embolism (PE) protocol at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology on-call. Since the introduction of this protocol in the literature and at our institution, we have seen the study gain wide acceptance. With its indication creep, the number of studies positive for PE has declined. This lecture will focus on the PE protocol in 2016 with focus on a diagnostic approach topulmonary emboli of all sorts (acute, chronic, iatrogenic, septic and neoplastic). Pitfalls in interpretation will also be included. The use of the PE CT will also be discussed in our hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) center. We will end with a discussion on emerging trends and the role of other modalities.
Making the EHR Work for Diagnostic Radiologists
The electronic health record (EHR) receives little use or attention by many diagnostic radiologists. Some even complain that it wasn’t designed with them in mind. Could this really be our own failure to engage available tools? Learn how your EHR can drive diagnostic workflow and increase medical communication while improving both clinical quality and efficiency.
Overcoming Physician Stress and Distress: How do we Take Care of Our Own?
This talk will discuss the current drivers of physician stress and distress and then review the elements necessary to develop a successful physician mental health program. We will review the importance of overcoming stigma and providing accessible and responsive services for both house staff and attending physicians. The talk will review data from our experience with the UNC Taking Care of Our Own Program and also discuss other models. We will also discuss a new emotional support program to address the impact of adverse patient events on physicians.
