Top Ten Ways to Improve Patient Care to be Presented at Spring Postgraduate Course
Attendees at the 2013 AGA Spring Postgraduate Course, Putting Patients First: Actionable Evidence for Clinical Practice, will benefit from a new feature implemented by course directors Brennan Spiegel, MD, MSHS, AGAF, FACG, and co-directors Neena Abraham, MD, MSCE, FACG, FASGE, and Corey Siegel, MD, MS. The course directors have asked each speaker to end his or her talk with three actionable points for immediate patient care, and the course will end with a summary of 10 “best of the best” action points selected by the directors.
With general sessions focusing on the upper GI tract, functional GI disorders, liver and pancreatobiliary disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and the colon, attendees will leave the course with new ideas for the diagnosis and management of common GI and liver disorders. Attendees will also learn how to integrate social media, patient-provider portals, novel apps and wireless sensors into daily practice in a new general session focused on emerging technologies.
