Tuesday, 26 August 2014 13:22

Ege University School of Medicine Sect. Gastroenterology, Izmir, Turkey.

  • Application deadline: 1 October 2014, participants to be informed within two weeks.
  • Applicants must be born January 1, 1974 or later.
  • 20 participants will attend. Participants are going to be selected by the faculty according to a country quota.

The Course is organized by the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM) in association with the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) and Turkish Society of Gastroenterology (TSG) and supported by an educational grant from UEG.

Aim of the Course:

Recent years have seen important advances in the clinical investigation and treatment of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) dysmotility, functional GI diseases and continence problems. As a result there is also increasing demand from clinical fellows and young investigators for knowledge and training in this area of medicine. This course will address this need by bringing small groups together with experts in the field to gain experience with a wide range of techniques used in the assessment of GI function and to discuss their application in swallowing difficulties, reflux symptoms, continence problems and other functional GI diseases. At the end of the course, participants will have received practical training in:

  1. Application and Analysis of key technologies including esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM), pH-impedance reflux studies, anorectal HRM and continence function tests for constipation and incontinence. The position of new technologies will also be discussed.
  2. Classification-diagnosis of dysmotility, functional GI disorders and continence problems based on clinical presentation and findings of physiological investigation
  3. Management of motility, functional GI disorders and continence problems

The EME Programme is accepting applications to its commissioned workstream for stratified medicine in non-cancerous conditions. The call closes on 3 June 2014. Anyone interested can register for a webinar on 25 March 2014 to learn more about the call. Further information about the EME programme remit, the commissioning brief and tips for making a successful application are available from the EME website. NETSCC strongly advises that potential applicants collaborate and plan - successful EME applications generally involve strong collaborations between an academic unit and/or NHS organisation and/or industry. Build a strong team and start to prepare your bid using your combined expertise.

You can also develop new partnerships by attending a stratified medicine event co-hosted by the EME Programme and the NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure (NOCRI) on Tuesday 1 April 2014 in central London. At this event, you will
learn from people in industry about their experience working with the NHS and researchers
hear researcher perspectives on partnering to take advantage of EME research funding awards
meet with potential partners to establish collaborations and take your funding application forward.
More information will be available later this month.
