ASGE Annual GI Advanced Practice Provider Course Bundle (On-Demand) | April 2023 OLAPPARP23ALL
This course contains recordings of the live/virtual course that took place March 31st-April 1st, 2023.

Advanced practice providers (APPs) are an integral part of any gastroenterology practice’s clinical team. This virtual two-day course was designed for those APPs and the physicians and practice staff who work with and/or supervise them. Given a mix of lectures and interactive panel discussions, this is an excellent introductory or refresher course. It will highlight ways to build and sustain more collaborative working relationships, and it will detail the steps a GI practice should take to integrate APPs into its clinical team. Day one will address the APP’s normal day-to-day roles and responsibilities – as well as touching on some practice management and professional development topics – while day two will delve into more advanced concepts like pancreatic disease, dysphagia, GI bleeding, IBD, and GI emergencies.
