NPs and PAs: Enhance Your Value in the GI Care Team

April 12, 2016

AGA's popular course provides practical instruction to improve diagnostic and therapeutic skill sets.

Whether it's the latest in HCV management and treatment or vital updates in IBD, the Principles of Gastroenterology for the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant course provides in-depth information on effectively treating multiple GI and hepatic disorders. Attendees walk away with the practical information needed to improve their delivery of patient care.

The 2016 program, which takes place Aug. 19 to 21 in Chicago, IL, also includes breakout sessions, allowing attendees to maximize their learning experience. Attendees choose the subject matter that's most important to them and join their peers in a smaller, more personal setting. There are also extensive opportunities to network — from breaks and breakfast each morning to the scheduled networking lunch.

For more information on the program and registration details, visit the course Web page. Early registration ends Monday, June 20, 2016.

Feedback on Challenging Cases
Attendees can submit their own cases to the course for an opportunity to have faculty provide feedback during the scheduled team discussion. Submitting a case automatically enters attendees into a drawing to win a new iPad Air 2©. Learn more.
