Interventional Endoscopy in IBD e-Coursee-Course
Year: 2019
Authors: Marietta Iacucci, Rosanna Cannatelli, Takayuki Matsumoto, Toshio Uraoka, Paulo Kotze, Bo Shen

This course has been developed for physicians and endoscopists interested in Inflammatory Bowel Disease(s) (IBD). One major aim of this e-learning activity is to increase competence and knowledge with regard to endoscopy in IBD in order to improve patient outcomes.

The main learning objective will be to train participants in the evaluation of endoscopic images  of colonic lesions using multiple endoscopic techniques and modalities including the new advanced optical diagnosis technologies: dye chromoendoscopy, dyeless chromoendoscopy, magnification, when and why to do EMR  and ESD. Further this course will detail EMR and ESD techniques and the challenges of ESD and the management of strictures , fistulae and complications in IBD.

The major aim of the endoscopy course is to increase competence, knowledge, and confidence of the participants with regard to interventional therapy and endotherapy  in IBD and to improve patient management and outcomes.

Participants will be trained in the evaluation and interpretation of endoscopic images and videos and in understanding how to assess the situation, how to perform, what to look for, and when and how to treat.
