Lucia Larson, MD, FACP Director, Obstetric Medicine, Women’s Medicine Collaborative, Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI

Internists have an important role in the care of women across the lifespan. This role has become more important around pregnancy as maternal mortality in the United States increases and women delay childbearing until they are older when they enter pregnancy with more disorders, such as hypertension, obesity, and diabetes. Although the obstetrician is comfortable with pregnancy, internists have special expertise in managing medical problems. This Pre-Course will provide key principles for internists caring for women with medical disorders prior to pregnancy to optimize pregnancy outcomes. Through case-based learning with an audience response system, important physiologic changes in pregnancy, the appropriate use of medication and diagnostic imaging, and the assessment and management of common medical problems in pregnancy will be illustrated. Postpartum disorders and issues regarding lactation and medication use will be addressed. The opportunity to identify future health risks and prevention interventions on the basis of pregnancy events will be highlighted. 12

Learning Objectives: 1. Describe the important physiologic changes in pregnancy that impact medical illness and understand the appropriate use of medication and diagnostic imaging in the pregnant woman. 2. Provide the internist with a framework for preconception counseling and optimizing common medical diseases in anticipation of pregnancy. 3. Review how the management of common medical disease in pregnancy differs from that in the nonpregnant patient (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, thrombosis, thyroid disease, depression). 4. Outline important concepts of breastfeeding and the use of medication and diagnostic imaging in breastfeeding women. 5. Recognize the importance of pregnancy and postpartum disorders in predicting future health risks for women.

The hospital is a complex environment. Navigating it on behalf of our patients requires a broad and constantly growing body of clinical knowledge combined with an understanding of the systems that support them. This Pre-Course will take you through the challenges of common and uncommon clinical conundrums, aggravating administrative assignments, and Byzantine bureaucratic barriers. First and foremost, we will keep in mind the needs of the patient, as well as the impact on the hospital and the hospitalist. Individual lectures will involve review of up-to-date medical care using a case-based format and an audienceresponse system. This Pre-Course will present an advanced and practical perspective of hospital medicine.

Learning Objectives: 1. Review inpatient management of complex patients in case-based presentations. 2. Succeed at adapting to new rules and regulations to better advocate for patients. 3. Updates in the latest hospital medicine literature.

Musculoskeletal complaints and sportrelated injuries are very common in primary care, but internists receive little instruction in office-based orthopedics. Most of these conditions do not require surgery and can therefore be managed by the knowledgeable internist. This Pre-Course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and tools needed to correctly evaluate, diagnose, and treat most orthopedic complaints seen in the internal medicine office. The Pre-Course will utilize a case-based approach to familiarize participants with basic joint and tendon anatomy and landmarks and make participants comfortable with performing a concise, targeted office exam. This will be combined with knowledge of the epidemiology of musculoskeletal complaints in primary care to develop an accurate diagnostic approach. Treatment of these common conditions will be discussed, with special emphasis on a practical, evidence-based, cost-effective approach to physical therapy and medical devices (e.g., splints).

Learning Objectives: 1. Know the epidemiology of the most common orthopedic and sports medicine conditions seen in the internal medicine office. 2. Identify basic joint and tendon anatomy in major joint and musculoskeletal regions. 3. Perform targeted, practical, evidencebased diagnostic maneuvers for common musculoskeletal complaints.
