21st ESGENA Conference

Thursday, 20 April 2017 10:13

28-30 October 2017
In conjunction with the 25th United European Gastroenterology Week

Following past meetings in 2010 and 2015, this is the third time that the medical and nursing community of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy will meet in Barcelona.

After celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016, ESGENA will continue its established structures while also initiating new formats of interactive learning. Recent successes have already connected countries and have laid the foundation for new future projects.

The three day ESGENA conference is not only an opportunity to meet colleagues from throughout Europe, but also from North and South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. The exchange with nurses from all over the world combined with the opportunity to attend the medical programme of the UEG Week ensures that the ESGENA conference will be an exceptional educational event.

In 2017 the UEG will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in Barcelona, offering interesting and interactive learning formats which emphasise the multidisciplinary approach.

Calling All GI Nurses to Endolive UK 2017 - Just 6 weeks to go!

Friday, 20 January 2017 13:17

On behalf of the BSGNA I am delighted to invite you to Endolive UK 2017. The first Endolive meeting in 2015 was the largest live endoscopy meeting ever held in the UK with more than 500 delegates. The two day meeting will be held at the Birmingham ICC with live links to two of the UK's premier endoscopic centres, St Mark's in London and Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

The very best of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy will be demonstrated with a real focus on quality and this year we have a dedicated nurse forum. There are sessions to address;

  • Competencies in GI nursing
  • GI workforce
  • Optimising outcomes for our patients

We aim to emphasise the importance of the team approach to ensure patients experience a quality endoscopy. We have also introduced the option of a team booking. Registration details can be found in the attached flyer.

We hope the meeting will bring us all up to date with the latest advances in endoscopic technique, technology and practice.

I hope you will join us at this fantastic event. For further information contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
