Both generalists and specialists can struggle to identify how best to manage patients with GI problems given the myriad of investigations and treatment options, which can lead to uncertainty as to who is best placed to look after the patient.
The COVID-19 crisis has made this worse. This joint webinar will be useful to both generalists and GI specialists caring for a group of patients with unmet needs and limited access to specialist investigation and treatment. Effective communication and coordination of care can fill the gap between community and hospital services.
Key learning points for this meeting include:
- Getting the most from the telephone consultation with gastroenterology symptoms. Learn how to best adopt and adapt these skills and identify those patients needing face to face consultation
- Effective liaison between general practice and specialist services
- Effective engagement with coding and getting the most from data-driven research
- Making the most of non-invasive tests and electronic consulting technologies
Both GPs and GI Specialists will learn from each other as well as all those with an interest in caring for patients struggling with gastroenterology issues. This webinar has CPD accreditation.
Our provisionally agreed speakers include:
Dr Helen Salisbury, University of Oxford, BMJ Writer and Oxford GP, and Robert P H Logan, Consultant Gastroenterologist, King’s College Hospital, Prof Anton Emmanuel, UCL London, Dr James Turivll, Consultant Gastroenterologist York, Prof Joe West, University of Nottingham, Prof Willie Hamilton, Prof of Primary Care Diagnostics, University of Exeter.
