HOCUS POCUS! An OB/GYN’s Guide to the Magic of Point of Care Ultrasound

As obstetrician gynecologists, we are excellent sonographers however often do not have much experience scanning patients outside of the abdomen & pelvis. This lecture will review how to assess for pulmonary edema, atelectasis, fluid status, ejection fraction, and so much more using point of care ultrasound (POCUS)! POCUS has numerous applications to the OB/GYN practice including L&D, triage, the perioperative setting, and inpatient care; this presentation will review how to integrate POCUS into the OB/GYN's daily practice.

Social Media for the OB/GYN Hospitalist

Whether or not you use it or like it, social media is here to stay - including in our professional lives. This is increasingly relevant to us as obstetric providers as more patients look to social media to complement their medical care. In this presentation, we will review popular social media platforms, the benefits and pitfalls of having a professional social media presence, and how OBGYN Hospitalists can use these platforms to provide ongoing education outside of the hospital. This will benefit beginners and experienced users alike!

Advocacy 360/365

This session will address three of the many areas of advocacy central to OBGYN hospitalist roles that can affect 360-degree change on a daily basis. We will divide the session into three areas of focus:

  1. Creating positive culture: Using a job demands/resources framework, we will peel back the layers of responsibility and time management that contribute to burnout, a potent aggravator of racism and bias. We will create REAL job descriptions to identify pain points that contribute to conflict. We will practice ways to apply these approaches to our teams to improve communication and foster better collaboration and care. We will briefly practice some positive psychology skills shown to improve work environments.
  2. Reducing negative culture: We will dig into upstander behavior and other techniques to manage microaggressions, difficult conversations, and even repeated behavioral challenges. We will practice these techniques in groups.
  3. Mobilizing resources for patient care: We will discuss methods of closing the loop for patient follow up, including identification of community resources, establishing direct communication, and creating appropriate aftercare plans so that patients with absent or sparse care have clearer access and follow up.

Participants will leave with specific tools and practices in order to better advocate for themselves, their teams, and their patients.
