OVERVIEW
A strong physician-nurse team is essential to optimize patient care. This course offers a unique environment that emphasizes team dynamics. There is a focus on the distinct technical roles of physicians and assistants (RN or GI technician), who must work hand-in-hand to achieve the highest success for ERCP procedures. Pancreaticobiliary endoscopy teams of physicians, nurses, technologists, and associates are encouraged to attend the course together.

WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE

This course features experts in ERCP who will lead time through hands-on training and interactive didactic sessions to achieve optimal outcomes.

Didactic presentations will include—

  • Established approaches and new techniques related to ERCP practice
  • Case-based approaches that incorporate video and images
  • Q&A sessions to allow ample time for attendee-faculty interaction
  • A special section dedicated to assistants, including nurses and GI technicians

Hands-on demonstrations are led by physician and nurse faculty on proper use of technologies and techniques as they relate to physicians, nurses and assistants, with an emphasis on teamwork, as success requires not only individual proficiency, but also deliberate and calm communication between physician and assistant, as well as valuable pointers to optimize technique and team interaction. Hands-on sessions include:

  • Cannulation
  • Sphincterotomy
  • Stones
  • Stents: plastic and metal
  • Stricture assessment: tissue sampling, wire manipulation, cholangioscopy

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
  • Describe proper indications for ERCP and use of new ERCP-related technologies and techniques
  • Demonstrate basic ERCP teamwork skills
  • Utilize appropriate endoscopic therapy utilizing the latest ERCP treatment paradigms, technologies, and procedural techniques
