Please join us at the Hospital Medicine SIG meeting at PAS on Monday, May 8th from 8:30-11:30am -This year's SIG meeting will be a joint session between the HM and Patient and Family-Centered Care SIGs titled "Engaging Patients and Families in Hospital Care."

We are partnering with the Patient and Family-Centered Care SIG at PAS! As clinicians, we strive to not only provide care for and communicate with patients but to also incorporate families of our patients into everything we do. As such, it is important to meaningfully engage patients and families in hospital care and processes; however, accomplishing this can be challenging. We are planning to specifically address 4 topic areas: patient/family engagement in family-centered rounds, patient/family engagement in hospital safety, using technology to engage patients and families in the hospital setting and family-centered transitions of care from hospital to home. The session will include an opportunity to interact with and learn from experts in hospital medicine who have found ways to successfully engage patients and families in hospital care. We encourage all hospitalists and others interested in patient/family centered care to join us! Keep an eye out for more details over the coming months.

Welcome to the Consortium of Pediatric Hospital Medicine
Given the rapid progression of the field of PHM over the past few years and the recent approval for PHM to become a board certified specialty through the ABP, the three sponsoring organizations of PHM (including the APA, the AAP and the Society of Hospital Medicine) have decided to form the Consortium of Pediatric Hospital Medicine (CPHM) to provide a unified home for PHM and its key stakeholders. The APA Hospital Medicine Co-Chairs are members of the CPHM and will represent the interests of the APA Hospital Medicine SIG membership within the group.

Interested in serving as Chair of the APA Hospital Medicine SIG?
In March we will begin taking nominations for folks that are interested in serving a three-year term as SIG Co-Chair. Elections will be held in April and we will announce our new SIG Co-Chair at the PAS meeting. This is a great way to get involved with the APA and represent the Hospital Medicine community within the APA and on the national level. All HM SIG members are eligible to apply!
