State of the Art Screening and Surveillance for Gastrointestinal Cancers: Integrating Endoscopic Approaches with Emerging Technologies to Optimize Patient Care

Gastrointestinal cancers have the highest incidence and are the second leading cause of death in the United States.  Among GI cancers, only colon cancer has an official screening recommendation in the U.S.  Since GI cancers involve so many sites and their study is constant and diffuse, gastroenterologists often cannot keep up-to-date with the best means of screening and surveillance.  This course will provide the latest clinical updates and what is on the horizon that may impact a GI physician's practice.

Educational Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Recognize the clinical importance of screening for major GI cancers, including neoplasms of the esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, liver and pancreas.
  • Identify patients who will most benefit from routine screening for GI malignancy, including individuals with a genetic predisposition.
  • Discuss newly available tumor markers and predictive models.
  • Identify metrics of quality that can be applied to GI screening and surveillance practice.

Who Should Attend?:

  • Gastroenterologists
  • Endoscopists
  • Endosongraphers
  • Surgeons
  • Oncologists
  • Nurses
  • Healthcare professionals committed to the advancement of endoscopy
