  • Effectively identify the clinical applications of temperature management for neurological patients.
  • Describe the variation in antibiotic pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in the critically ill.
  • Apply precision medicine principles to antibiotic regimens in the critically ill.
  • Develop action plans for dealing with antibiotic optimization in the critically ill.
  • Differentiate between shared decision making and traditional informed consent.
  • Implement a shared decision making model that includes strategies to overcome common barriers 
  • Determine when patients are ready for ventilator liberation.
  • Employ an evidence-based approach to ventilator liberation.
  • Reduce risk of extubation failure by utilizing evidence-based guidelines for the use of noninvasive ventilation and high flow nasal cannula.
  • Review the latest survival trends and prognostic factors in critically ill cancer patients admitted to the ICU.
  • Identify the most common reasons patients with cancer require ICU admission and utilize the most current advances in the management of these critically ill patients.
  • Utilize evidence based diagnostic and management approaches to the critically ill cancer patients with acute respiratory failure.
  • Recognize the relationship between critical illness and the human microbiome.
  • Identify patients whose microbiome is likely to be affected by critical illness.
  • Apply evidence-based alterative treatment options to maintain the microbiome in the critically ill patients.
  • Define contraction band necrosis.
  • Describe the clinical characteristic of neurogenic stunned myocardium in laboratory, echocardiogram and EKG results.
  • Utilize appropriate treatment algorithms for patients presenting with sever stress cardiomyopathy.
  • Identify the benefits of precision medicine over “one size fits all” therapy.
  • Describe how the data rich environment of the ICU may identify patient subsets for research and precision management.
  • Describe the beneficial effects of high flow nasal cannula and noninvasive ventilation (NIV) in patients with hypoxemia respiratory failure.
  • Employ an evidence based approach to lung protective ventilation.
  • Implement evidence-bases strategies for ventilatory support and adjunctive therapies in patients utilizing both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic techniques.
  • Identify the major causes of morbidity and mortality of patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
  • Describe the unique pulmonary complications patients encounter after stem cell transplantation requiring intensive care.
