Case-Based Learning an Integral Part of NP, PA Course

June 23, 2015

Standard registration for the course ends Friday, Aug. 7, 2015.

At the annual AGA course Principles of Gastroenterology for the Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Physician Assistant (PA), which takes place Aug. 14 to 16 in Chicago, IL, faculty will use practical, case-based examples to demonstrate topics. This approach to enhancing clinical skill sets has proven to be an effective educational tool, with learners continually reporting a deeper level of understanding and retention.

By addressing the unique educational needs of GI NPs and PAs through case-based learning, the course provides these members of the clinical care team with an opportunity to enhance their diagnostic and therapeutic skill sets. Attendees will be able to review the latest advances in patient care for a wide range of GI disorders, such as:

  • IBD and IBS.
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis and gastroparesis.
  • Chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
  • Hepatitis C, fatty liver disease and more.

Attendees can also take advantage of breakout sessions to maximize their learning experience, while focusing on the subjects that are most important to them.
