Professor Prateek Sharma – Artificial Intelligence in Barrett’s Oesophagus (an update from the USA)
Dr Manu Nayar – Endoscopy training during COVID-19 and shape of training – How can the BSG help?
Discussion of the shape of training, the role of endoscopy fellowships and specialised training initiatives
Dr Bu Hayee – Sustainability in endoscopy – green for go?
Endoscopy is the third-highest producer of waste in healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us pause to analyse how we might do things differently. Many sources of information, national bodies and technologies exist that could help us to easily make our practice “greener”, but it can be difficult to know where to begin. This talk will highlight relevant topics and initiatives that could kick-start the changes we need.
