  • Event aims:
    Due to continuous improvement in technology and practice, there is a need for education not only on the basics of devices and procedures, but also on the state of the art endoscopy. There is also the need to differentiate technologies that have an impact in the daily clinical practice, from those that should be only used in a research setting. This course was developed, revised and refined to meet the needs of attendees with different backgrounds and different roles in endoscopy practice. So, the educational needs of endoscopy assistant, endoscopy nurse, gastroenterologist and surgeon are different. All should share some common knowledge and skills, but there is also a need for specific education. For example, part of the course will be focus on endoscopy devices, their use and application, that would be of pivotal importance to endoscopists assistance and nurses. Part of the course would be also focused on new developments in the field, their role in clinical practice and how different technologies can be implemented. This would be of great value for gastroenterologists and surgeons.
