Course DescriptionUnder the direction of expert faculty, this course is designed to improve endoscopic practice through live case presentations, video and hands-on demonstrations, educational lectures including audience interaction and questions, and hands-on training using animal tissue models.
The course goals are to help participants improve their ability to accurately diagnose and effectively treat the spectrum of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, enhance quality and safety in all practice settings, recognize trends in interventional endoscopic and surgical procedures, apply state-of-the-art technology in a cost-effective way, embrace advances in healthcare delivery, payment, and information sharing; and to foster an evidence-based approach to endoscopic decision-making for commonly encountered and controversial problems in gastroenterology.
Gastrointestinal endoscopy continues to experience rapid expansion of knowledge and technological innovation, both of which are impacting the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. Additionally, advances in therapeutic endoscopy are challenging or entirely replacing certain endoscopic techniques that previously were purely diagnostic. Gastroenterologists must understand and effectively apply current and emerging diagnostic and treatment options while maximizing quality and safety. In view of these developments, the need for superior continuing education becomes increasingly important. This course will enable participants to attain and apply cutting-edge information and evolving technological innovations to elevate practice levels and enhance patient care and treatment outcomes.
- Discuss the spectrum of commonly seen disorders of the esophagus and stomach, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, motility disorders, and peptic ulcer disease, and outline related treatment options and their effectiveness
- Evaluate advances in the methods of assessing disease status in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, and discuss the application of these techniques to patient treatment
- Discuss the efficacy and safety of treatments for viral hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and other chronic liver disorders
- Identify appropriate methods to detect and treat common disorders of the small bowel and colon, such as colon polyps, as well as endobariatric therapy for obesity, and review the effectiveness of these approaches
- Examine the diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities of current and emerging advanced endoscopic techniques to diagnose and treat disorders of the hepatobiliary tract, pancreas, and luminal gastrointestinal tract and to detect and manage obscure upper and lower GI bleeding
