NYAM is pleased to welcome Harlan M. Krumholz, MD as the 2014 Nahum J. Winer Lecturer. Hospitalization is necessary to treat acutely ill patients, but the experience may be toxic and have long-lasting adverse effects. Dr. Krumholz has coined the term ‘post-hospital syndrome’ to describe the period of generalized vulnerability that follows hospitalization during which patients often develop health problems, seemingly unrelated to their initial condition, which often result in re-hospitalizations. Rethinking the hospital experience may be the first step toward improving recovery from acute illness.
