Event aims:
37th GEEW is moving on with the established pattern of combining live demonstrations with a direct interaction between the participants, the moderators and the experts performing procedures.
The learning objectives of the course will be :
1. Evaluation of established and most recent endoscopy techniques, assessing their clinical utility in a multidisciplinary setting
2. Description of pre-therapeutic assessment and post-treatment follow up
3. Detailed technical teaching of various procedures
4. Providing scientific appraisal of technologies, evidence-based, with comparison with other approaches
5. Recognition of the role of endoscopy in digestive diseases and its interaction with gastroenterology, surgery, oncology, radiology and transplantation
6. Teaching on prevention and treatment of complications
The format is based on live cases transmitted from Erasme Hospital, produced by a professional team in collaboration with experienced physicians and dedicated to provide the most comprehensive illustration of the procedures. All over the procedures, information summarizing the most recent publications will be displayed to reinforce the discussion based on scientific evidence.
