Course Description

ASGE has developed this course to educate physician and non-physician unit staff on how to translate quality concepts into practice at their endoscopy unit. The content of the course is dynamic, addressing the fundamentals of quality and safe practice as well as emerging trends and evidence. In addition to advancing their knowledge in endoscopy unit quality and safety, participants in this course will be prepared to apply for the ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program or renew their current participation.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

• Identify ways to define and measure quality in endoscopy

• Describe techniques to make endoscopy more efficient while maintaining safety

• Describe methods to improve patient satisfaction in endoscopy, including improved doctor-patient communication

• Recognize the potential sources of infection from contact with various body fluids, their transmissibility during gastrointestinal endoscopy, and their susceptibility to potential disinfectants

• Specify measures for improving unit quality, including training and credentialing for new procedures, quality assurance programs, sedation and monitoring, and unit accreditation and re-accreditation

Target Audience

Practicing gastrointestinal endoscopists and surgeons, medical directors, nurse managers, unit managers and allied professionals interested in advancing their knowledge in endoscopy unit quality and safety.
