Course DescriptionUnder the direction of expert faculty, this course is designed to improve endoscopic practice and change the learner’s approach to a wide range of disorders of the GI tract. The content of the course will provide current evidence and algorithms to support an efficient but effective evaluation of GI disorders, followed by prompt initiation of appropriate therapy that is directed toward improving patient care and outcomes.
Gastrointestinal endoscopy continues to experience a rapid expansion of knowledge and technological innovation, while advances in therapeutic endoscopy continue to challenge or replace techniques that previously were purely diagnostic. While maintaining standards of quality and safety, gastroenterologists must understand and effectively apply current and emerging diagnostic and treatment options in order to elevate practice levels and enhance patient outcomes.
This course will help participants improve their ability to accurately diagnose and effectively treat gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, enhance quality and safety in practice settings recognize trends and technological advances in interventional endoscopic and surgical procedures, and foster an evidence-based approach to endoscopic decision-making for commonly encountered and controversial problems in gastroenterology.
- Identify appropriate methods to detect and treat common disorders of the small bowel, colon and pancreas, as well as endobariatric therapy for obesity, and review the effectiveness of these approaches
- Discuss the spectrum of commonly seen disorders of the esophagus and stomach, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, motility disorders and gastric intestinal metaplasia, and outline related treatment options and their effectiveness
- Discuss the management of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and evaluate the efficacy and safety of current treatments
- 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
- Examine the diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities as well as complications 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
- Discuss the gastrointestinal manifestations of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID 19) and examine the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on endoscopy practice
