Multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) provides a method to assess the movement of fluids, solids, and air in the esophagus and in the paediatric practice it is particularly useful for the investigation of children with suspected gastro-esophageal reflux.

This state of the art course is designed to provide an overview of the application of MII studies 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 and interpret MII studies.

Expert Paediatric Gastroenterologists will introduce delegates in the technicalities of the test as well as in analysing and reporting through a series of case studies.

Learning Objectives:

  • To have an understanding of the technicalities (catheters, recording devices, software, patient instruction and protocol) of MII
  • To understand the indications, analysis and reporting of MII studies
  • To understand the limitations, complications and futures perspectives of MII

You should attend if you are a:

  • Trainee/Consultant in General Paediatrics
  • Trainee/Consultant in Paediatric Gastroenterology
  • Specialist Nurse in Paediatric Gastroenterology

We are delighted to announce we will be hosting our second Paediatric Gastroenterology Nurses Study Day on Friday 17th November 2017 at the Royal College of Nursing, London. This day is aimed at Paediatric Nurses in Primary and Secondary Care, as well as providing an update for those working in specialised Gastroenterology areas.

It will cover common conditions presented in paediatrics, along with topical sessions such as transition, working in partnership with challenging families, gastro pharmacology and investigations. This day will provide you with up to date, evidence based information presented by national experts in this field.

We hope to see you there.
