					                          20TH ANNUAL COURSE IN
                       PAEDIATRIC GASTROENTEROLOGY

            WEDNESDAY 10TH – FRIDAY 12TH FEBRUARY 2010

This annual course, now in its 20th consecutive year, is directed at trainees and
consultants in paediatric gastroenterology, as well as general paediatricians who have
an interest in this field. The course provides an annual update of advances in
gastroenterology, at both the clinical and research levels. We attempt to provide a
bridge between recent advances in the basic sciences as applied to clinical practice,
and to bring a pragmatic approach to patient interaction.

This year’s course will include the following topics:-
Serological testing and diagnostic guidelines in coeliac disease, diagnosis and
treatment of reflux disease, constipation, abdominal pain, pre- & probiotics, infective
hepatitis, obesity and liver disease, IgE mediated food allergy, innate immunity, food
safety, “Meet the Expert” group sessions with the course speakers on coeliac disease,
feeding problems, constipation, IBD, and allergy, and a day dedicated to endoscopy
(best practice, polyposis & genetic counselling, safety, training, simulator use) and
IBD (difficult areas, biological therapy, treating inflammation). It should be of interest
to both in-training and established paediatric GI endoscopists as well as to
paediatricians who refer children for endoscopic procedures.
                         (19 CPD credits allocated for the course)

General
