Endorsed Event: Web-based Small Bowel Video Capsule Training Course
We’re delighted to endorse the Web-based Small Bowel Video Capsule Training Course, taking place 5th July 2021 and running for 8 weeks.
Small bowel video capsule endoscopy offers minimally invasive imaging of the oesophagus, stomach and small intestine. Small bowel capsule endoscopy requires little technical skill for delivery and can fulfil the criteria for social distancing whilst Covid-19 remains a threat. The IMIGe web-based small bowel capsule course, developed in accordance with published European and American guidance, offers doctors and nurses with some GI experience the opportunity to gain appropriate skills in delivery and reading.
The curriculum is delivered by a smartphone app and a web-enabled browser-based PillCam Simulator, which allows access to 20 full small bowel capsule studies, graded from easy to more complex and subtle. Aspiring practitioners will be asked to read and report two or three full studies each week. Each report will be submitted online for assessment by Professor Epstein and capsule nurse specialist Hansa Palmer, who will provide individual feedback on each report. This will be supported by one introductory and two subsequent zoom webinars and a help desk. The final five studies will be used for summative assessment and the award of a certificate of completion.
This course is appropriate for gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons and associated trainees, as well as nurse endoscopists and IBD nurse specialists engaged in monitoring disease activity and the efficacy of treatment interventions.
This meeting is eligible for CPD accreditation and offers BSG members a 30% discount on registration fees.
