Patients with motility disorders challenge general and subspecialist gastroenterologists alike with occasionally difficult and constantly evolving diagnostic and treatment strategies.  This seminar will explore three relevant topics in motility, dysphagia, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and chronic constipation, and focus on updates relevant to current practitioners.

At the end of the seminar, participants should be able to:
Utilize a common diagnostic approach in patients with achalasia and non-obstructive dysphagia.
Apply current recommendations in the diagnosis and management of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Recognize, diagnose and manage common subtypes of constipation.
