Description

  • Assessing abdominal pain: Is an emergency looming?
  • The BEST strategies to identify the cause of elevated liver function tests
  • Clostridium difficile: How many recurrences until we utilize fecal transplant?
  • What you need to know about “interval” colon cancer
  • Probiotic treatments 2018
  • Identify the source of the GI bleed
  • Irritable bowel syndrome: Importance of “alarm symptoms”

Last week, you met Henry, a 67-year-old man who was seen for rectal bleeding and who had an Hgb of 9. He tells you that he had a normal screening colonoscopy just 1 year ago. Now workup reveals a sigmoid cancer. How could this happen? How can we prevent this from occurring in other patients? Let’s learn about “alarm symptoms,” key colon cancer risk factors, “interval cancer,” the latest alternatives to colonoscopy and ways to ensure that our patients stay on their colon cancer screening schedules.

How many times have you been frustrated when you review your patient’s abnormal liver function tests? Is it Hepatitis A, B, C, a medication side effect or Fatty Liver Disease?

Are statins OK in your patient?

How do we choose between ASA and Acetaminophen in chronic liver disease?

Learn from Clinical Gastroenterologist, Peter Buch, MD, AGAF, FACP, and leave this training with the following skills:

  • Confidently assess patients presenting with acute and chronic abdominal pain
  • Understand the latest treatments for Clostridium Difficile
  • The latest techniques to evaluate and treat GI bleeding
  • Help differentiate Irritable Bowel Syndrome from other conditions
