Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) provides a method to assess small bowel pathology by filling the endoscopic gap between push-enteroscopy and ileocolonoscopy and allows physicians to visualise the most inaccessible parts of the gut in a minimally invasive manner.
In it's second year, this state of the art course is designed to provide an overview of the application of VCE in children through a combination of lectures, interactive demonstrations and hands-on exercises. The structure of the program has been specifically tailored to address the needs of health professionals who perform VCE studies in Paediatric practice.
Well renowned Paediatric Gastroenterologists with expertise in the field of capsule endoscopy will enlighten delegates on the technicalities of VCE as well as on the pathology recognition and reporting through a series of case studies.
Constipation in children remains one of the commonest symptoms encountered in childhood and accounts for a significant proportion of the clinical workload in general practice, general paediatrics and paediatric gastroenterology. Despite this the diagnosis, treatment and ultimately outcome remain challenging. This course brings together experts in childhood constipation to provide a practical approach to classification, diagnosis and treatment, with emphasis on the commonest form, so-called ‘functional constipation’. Speakers include authors of very recent NICE and international guidelines for paediatric constipation. We are honoured to have Professor Marc Benninga the ‘father of modern constipation’ as part of the guest faculty.
The course is suitable for the spectrum of multi-disciplinary professionals involved in the care of children suffering constipation including trainees, consultants, nurse specialists, GPs and paediatric gastroenterologists.
