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 

To make it as practical as possible, this course will be limited to 10 people.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is highly prevalent in paediatric practice. Most children can be managed with effective medical treatment but inevitably some will require surgery. The positive benefits of anti-reflux surgery in children are frequently outweighed by the adverse symptom profile and the high recurrence rate especially in the neurologically impaired child. 

This course is aimed at all professionals involved in the treatment of children with GORD. It will help you to understand the best options for medical treatment and to help to identify which children may benefit from anti-reflux surgery and crucially, which children should avoid surgery. It is presented by a panel of UK experts in the field of paediatric gastroenterology and surgery. 


You should attend if you are a:

  • Trainee/Consultant in Paediatrics
  • Trainee/Consultant Paediatric Surgery
  • General Practitioner
  • Paediatric Nurse

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.

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.
