‘Tricks and tips’ breakout sessions: Friday 17th November 0815-0900
These popular sessions provide an informal opportunity to focus on specific endoscopic techniques and approaches, each led by 2 expert faculty. Sessions will include:
• Endoscopic classification and management of colonic polyps
• Endoscopic resection of early oesophagogastric neoplasia
• Cholangioscopy in the management of strictures and stones
• EUS-guided pancreatic and biliary drainage
Hands-On Suite: Friday 17th November 1315 – 1630
Faculty led tutorials and training using ex-vivo and simulator models. Techniques to include: polypectomy, EMR, enteral stenting, clipping, fistula closure, ERCP (selective cannulation, safe sphincterotomy, stone extraction, stenting), EUS (diagnostic, FNA). These sessions allow focussed learning, and complement other aspects of the live course, enhancing endoscopic confidence, competence, and decision making. Individual tutorials with experts in the field can also be pre-booked from 14:00-16:30.
“Experts on the Spot” Friday 17th November 1400 – 1630
During live cases it is often difficult for endoscopists and faculty to address the points they wish to raise, or delegates to ask questions. This innovation aims to address this. These sessions will include review of the live cases (including video-replay and imaging/pathology feedback), faculty/delegate Q+A, technique and technology discussion. Each session will involve the expert faculty, and allow detailed procedure-specific discussion. Each delegate will have the use of an iPad during the course, which will allow enhanced learning during these sessions.
Nurses programme: Thursday 16th November 1700-1800
Endoscopic excellence is a team effort, and excellence in nursing care is vital for ensuring excellent outcomes. A dedicated endoscopy nurse programme will be delivered, providing a focused chance for hands-on training in endoscopic accessories, and discussion topics on optimising patient care.
Course Dinner – Thursday 16th November 2017
We hope that the course will be an opportunity to relax, meet friends and colleagues, and perhaps take in the attractions of London. Course dinner on Thursday 16th November will be held at Le Méridien Piccadilly.
