May issue online and in the mail

This month's issue of ACP Hospitalist focuses on reducing heart failure readmissions, improving ICU care, and combating sexual harassment in medicine.


The latest issue of ACP Hospitalist is now available, and the cover story investigates why past and current efforts have failed to significantly improve outcomes for heart failure patients and what might be required to really make a difference on this front. This month's Success Story offers one solution, describing how a hospital improved patients' adherence to heart failure medications. Other May features look at hospitalists' responsibilities in the ICU and the Me Too movement in medicine. This issue also includes the Brief Case section, with cases from Emory Division of Hospital Medicine and Yale University School of Medicine, and an Expert Analysis about spontaneous heparin-induced thrombocytopenia syndrome.
