Patients who visit you to complain about constant heartburn may easily be diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), but at what point would your diagnosis be for Barrett’s esophagus (BE) or something more serious? What courses of treatment would be most appropriate? What new technologies are entering the market that offer you the most effective approach to caring for your patients?
AGA now offers Upper GI Tech Talks, four free 20-minute case-based podcasts for GI clinicians, addressing key trends and cutting-edge clinical advances for GERD, BE and esophageal cancer. The podcasts are designed to help you better identify conditions that may influence or mitigate GERD and BE, and alert you to new endoscopic therapies and screening technologies.
After listening to the podcasts, you will be able to:
- Identify why phenotyping in GERD is important and how to adopt such an approach.
- Identify the most effective reflux monitoring systems.
- Identify appropriate candidates for emerging endoscopic therapies for BE.
- Identify available modalities for BE ablation, who will need it and outcomes you can expect.
Visit AGA University and view all four short, easy-to-digest and informative podcasts as well as other GI educational courses.
The podcast series is supported by a grant from Medtronic and is a non-CME educational offering in collaboration with the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology.
