Episode 65 – Hydrocortisone for Pneumonia and Goals of Care Conversations

Welcome back Rounds Table Listeners!

We are back today with our Classic Rapid Fire Podcast!

This week, Drs. Mike Fralick and Justin Boyle discuss two recent papers about the use of hydrocortisone for severe pneumonia and interventions to improve communication in goals of care conversations. Two papers, here we go!

  1. Hydrocortisone in Severe Community-Acquired Pneumonia (0:00 – 8:05).

  2. Intervention to Promote Communication About Goals of Care for Hospitalized Patients With Serious Illness: A Randomized Clinical Trial (8:05 – 15:50).

And for the Good Stuff:

  • Congratulations to everyone who completed their Royal College examinations! 
  • Paper Scrape: a soon-to-be released tool to find and summarize research relevant to General Internal Medicine.

We would like to give a special thanks to the Sault Ste. Marie Physician Recruitment and Retention Program for sponsoring today’s episode.

Questions? Comments? Feedback? We’d love to hear from you! @roundstable
