Hands On Suite Friday Nov 30th 1400 – 1630

Faculty led tutorials and training using ex-vivo and simulator models. Techniques to include: polypectomy, EMR, ESD, enteral stenting, clipping, fistula closure, ERCP (selective cannulation, safe sphincterotomy, stone extraction, stenting), Cholangioscopy, EUS (diagnostic, FNA). These sessions allow focussed learning, and complement other aspects of the live course, enhancing endoscopic confidence, competence, and decision making.

 

“Experts on the Spot” Friday Nov 30th 1400 – 1630

During  live cases it is often 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.

 

‘Tricks and tips’ breakout sessions: Friday Nov 30th 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:

  • Transnasal endoscopy
  • Endoscopic resection of early oesophagogastric neoplasia  and management of malignant/benign strictures
  • Selective biliary cannulation and difficult stones
  • Techniques for enhanced polypectomy

 

Nurses programme: Thurs Nov 30th 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 optimizing patient care.
