Annual Advances and Innovations in Endoscopic Oncology and Multidisciplinary Gastrointestinal Cancer Care Overview

The evolution of endoscopic techniques and technology has created challenges in keeping clinicians up to date. In addition, current educational and training programs for gastroenterologists lack the necessary cancer-specific components.  As cancer treatment approaches continue to transform, the endoscopy field requires a forum for dialogues on how to adapt and adjust practices in light of new treatment options. This course aims to bridge a critical educational void specifically focusing on endoscopic techniques and the latest advancements in technology for the comprehensive care of cancer patients. Furthermore, it offers a platform for collaborative discussions among diverse healthcare professionals regarding the ever-evolving landscape of endoscopy in a rapidly changing field where guidelines are constantly evolving.

Through leading-edge lectures, case discussion and interactive question and answer sessions, this intensive 2-day program will provide participants with an enhanced ability to interpret and apply these best treatment options into their individual practices. In addition, this year’s program highlights a nursing and advanced practice provider course. 

Target Audience

Medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, radiation oncologists in addition to gastroenterologists, radiologists, interventional radiologists, palliative care providers, advanced practice providers, nurses, and all other allied health care professionals interested in the subject matter.

  • Integrate gastroenterologists with the multidisciplinary oncology team to effectively improve patient outcomes.
