APPs: Enhance your delivery of patient care

March 28, 2018

AGA's popular course for advanced practice providers will be held this summer in Chicago.

Taking place Aug. 10 to 12, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois, the Principles of GI for the NP and PA course offers a comprehensive program that focuses on best practices and evidence-based medicine within a team-based GI model. The course provides advanced practice providers (APP) with an opportunity to develop and enhance their diagnostic and therapeutic skill sets to help improve overall patient care.

Sessions will cover:

  • Esophageal and gastric disorders, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett's esophagus, gastroparesis, H. pylori, upper GI bleeding and eosinophilic esophagitis.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, treatment of IBD and biosimilars.
  • Colon disorders, including lower GI bleeding, colorectal cancer screening, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), microscopic colitis, chronic diarrhea and C. diff.
  • Liver and pancreas disorders, including hepatitis C, cirrhosis, acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cysts.

A practice management networking lunch will also be held on day one (Aug. 10) of the course, giving attendees the opportunity to meet each other and discuss issues important to team-based care.

APPs new to the field, as well as those with years of experience, will find the course offers something for all who attend. To learn more and register, visit the course website.
