Who dictated course content for the 2019 Principles of GI for the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant (NPPA)? You did.
“The course content and speakers are carefully chosen each year to address both the changing practice of GI and liver disease based on feedback surveys completed by prior course attendees,” said Ikuo Hirano, MD, AGAF, and 2019 co-chair, in a newly released video by AGA.
The annual NPPA course is where leading advanced practice providers (APP), gastroenterology experts and physicians prepare APPs to effectively diagnose and treat a variety of disorders to deliver optimal patient care.
Dr. Hirano noted survey results encouraged course directors to add new topics this year, including the management of functional bowel disease with a keynote speech by Laurie Keefer, PhD, AGAF, from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, who will be addressing cognitive behavioral therapy for functional bowel disorders, and a workshop on the evaluation of esophageal function testing.
Some aspects of 2019 NPPA won’t change, however. It will continue to “provide ample opportunities for direct interaction with MD, PA and NP faculty, peer to peer networking, panel discussions, and smaller, more personalized breakout sessions,” Dr. Hirano said.
You can still save $100 off attending if you register by July 31.
