Breakout Sessions Added to AGA's Annual Course for NPs and PAs

April 17, 2014

Attendees of the course can maximize their learning experience by taking advantage of breakout sessions that offer additional insight on specific GI topics.

New this year, Principles of Gastroenterology for the Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Physician Assistant (PA) will feature breakout sessions on day two of the course. Attendees will be able to maximize their learning experience, while focusing on subject matters most important to them and engaging their colleagues in a smaller and more personal setting.

Physician John A. Martin, MD, and physician assistants Brenda A. Appolo, PA-C, MHS, and Kimberly Carter, MS, PA-C, will lead learners during this portion of the program. Topics to be covered include:

  • The Interventionalist: Role of Diagnostic and Therapeutic ERCP (Stents, Strictures) and EUS.
  • Transplant Hepatology: Post Transplant Management — What I Need to Know as the Community GI Provider.
  • Nutrition 101: When, What, How to Feed.
  • Obesity: Medical and Surgical Management.

NPs and PAs new to the field, as well as those with years of experience, will find the course offers something for all who attend.
