ASGE Annual Postgraduate Course: Leveraging New Advances to Improve Patient Outcomes (On-demand) | May 2024
Release Date: June 2024
Viewing Time:
7 hours

This course contains recordings from the live course that took place at DDW in Washington D.C. in May of 2024.
Gastrointestinal endoscopists across the globe look to future trends, such as the conversion of GI endoscopy data into 3D images, and how this and other technologies may advance endoscopic practice that improves patient care.  Yet, how can endoscopists integrate all these technologies when the cost of procedures continues to challenge early practice adoption? How do endoscopic practices address managing larger geriatric patient populations who present with increasing co-morbidities? Also, how does one manage the ever-changing patient lifestyle where unhealthy nutritional habits continue to grow, increasing other GI disease states? ASGE’s 2024 Postgraduate Course: Leveraging New Advances to Improve Patient Outcomes is guaranteed to provide essential endoscopic resources, current research highlights and forward practice trends. 

During the course, you’ll identify practice resources you can use with sessions that cover topics such as:

  • Pancreatobiliary disease states
  • Esophageal disorders
  • Emerging trends in high-quality colonoscopy techniques
  • Management of endoscopic varices
  • And more!

Optimal Viewing Experience in GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
