ACG Board of Governors / ASGE Best Practices Course

  1. 1. Hands-on sessions provide a valuable learning opportunity for attendees, though no CME will be provided. The American College of Gastroenterology designates this live activity for a maximum of 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The American College of Gastroenterology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. This program is designed for gastroenterologists, GI nurses, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, surgeons, primary care physicians and other health care professionals interested in the latest information on diagnostic GI and state of the art treatment of these illnesses. The incredible pace of advances and innovations in diagnosis and treatment across all facets of gastroenterology places tremendous demands on the busy clinician who seeks to be efficient in his or her delivery of the highest quality care. With the goal of integrating these advances and innovations into practice in a way that results in delivery of the best possible diagnostic and disease management strategies to assure delivery of the highest possible quality care, the Best Practices Course seeks to focus on the state of the art treatment for the most frequently seen conditions and disorders across gastroenterology, hepatology and practice management. Topics covered in the program include upper GI diseases, endoscopic updates and advances including endoscopic management of bariatric surgery complications, EUS, capsule endoscopy and novel endoscopic modalities, hepatology updates including hepatitis B and C, advances in IBD including biologics and screening for colorectal neoplasia, GI cancers including pancreatic and colon cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma, and functional bowel disorders including IBS, gastroparesis and use of complementary medicine. The structure of the program includes a mix of didactic presentations delivered by expert faculty, interactive audience discussions, significant question and answer opportunities, and a variety of smaller breakout sessions as well as “hands-on” workshops and a practice management seminar for attendees to explore issues of particular interest or concern.
