“Experts on the Spot” Friday Nov 29th 1400 – 1630
During live cases it is often difficult for endoscopists and faculty to address the points they wish to raise, or for delegates to have their questions asked. 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. Please note that whilst the Hands-On sessions will run in parallel, experts involved the dedicated Experts on the Spot sessions will not be involved in Hands-On during these times.
