 ear colleagues,

On behalf of ESGENA and the Swedish Society of Endoscopy and GE Nurses and Assistants (SEGP) we
                                          th                                                  th
have great pleasure inviting you to the 15 ESGENA Conference, which will be held during the 19 UEGW
on Saturday 22-24 October 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden.

The three day conference will include state-of-the-art lectures, free papers & posters, lunch sessions,
several workshops with hands-on-training and live transmissions. Interesting topics in Gastroenterology
and Endoscopy will ensure a truly global context. We are hoping to provide a full and varied programme –
to encourage you to meet up with colleagues from all over the world and exchange information with them.
This format will encourage networking and communication between the delegates – both between
individual nurses and national groups.

On Saturday, there will be an opportunity to attend several workshops organised in four parallel rooms. The
workshops will have a more practical focus and will be held in smaller groups – up to 50 – to encourage
discussion, questions, and exchanges of ideas. Following success at previous conferences, we will be
offering hands-on training using bio simulators for nurses on Saturday and Sunday. These workshops will
be organised in close cooperation with ESGE. Nurses will also have access to the UEGW post graduate

The conference will officially open with the ESGENA Welcome Reception on Saturday evening. In the past,
this has been a most enjoyable, informal evening with the opportunity to meet colleagues and friends from
all over Europe and overseas. This evening will be organised by the Swedish nurses as local hosts of the

On Sunday, the scientific programme, which includes two free paper sessions and a nurses‟ poster
session, will offer mainly nursing-oriented lectures in two parallel halls. In addition, lunch sessions will have
a more practical focus. The Plenary Session with lectures in one hall follows on Monday morning. This will
bring together all the delegates and we will award the prizes for the best free paper and the best poster.
The meeting will finish with invitations to forthcoming conferences.

The trade exhibition will open on Monday at lunchtime, and there should be enough time to browse the
stands if the medical scientific programme does not tempt you back into the lecture halls.
We hope that we will be able to welcome you at the 15                ESGENA Conference in October 2011 in
Stockholm, Sweden

Workshop 5: Nurse Endoscopist – "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"
This workshop is organised by ESGENA

15.30-17.00    Hall K 16/17
Chairs:        Ulrike Beilenhoff, Ulm, Germany
               Irene Dunkley, Huntington, UK

Aims & Content
Nurse endoscopy has been established in several European Countries for some time. The UK and Sweden
have structured national training courses for nurse endoscopists. Other European countries have
established local courses.

The workshop aims will discuss the following issues
    Tasks and responsibilities of nurse endoscopists
    Legal and ethical considerations
    Education & Training requirements
    Difficulties and resources in establishing a national training system
    Limitations in practice and difficulties in daily routine
    Job satisfaction and financial rewards
    Etc.

This is an open question-and-answer based workshop where the audience will be encouraged to
participate, an opportunity for nurse endoscopists from across Europe to exchange experiences, and for
those who are interested in the topic to ask questions (orally or in writing).

Workshop 6: Hygiene in the endoscopy room
This workshop is organised by Olympus Europa Holding GmbH

15.30-17.00    Hall K 22
Chairs:        Jürgen Gebel, Bonn, Germany
               Linda Ashhurst, Norway, Janie Smitt, NL

Aims & Content
The awareness on hygiene requirements for the reprocessing of flexible medical endoscopes and
accessories is quite well established today. Routine use of Washer-Disinfectors, documentation and
traceability are daily practice in most endoscopy departments in Europe. However, the workflow of patients,
products and users (doctors and nurses) still bears potential risks for infection cases.

This workshop will discuss the following issues:
    • Relevance and potential infection control risks in the endoscopic environment.
    • Set-up of local procedures for prevention of infection cases in the endoscopy room (example NL?).
    • Practical insight into daily workflow in the endoscopy room with special focus on surface, hand and
        skin hygiene.

Chair:           Sylvia Lahey, Arnhem, NL
                 Simone Schwardt, US Endoscopy

Aims & Content
The role of the nurse during colonoscopy is becoming ever more critical, especially with the increased
prevalence of colorectal cancer. Screening and polypectomy are the keys to prevention. As clinicians, it is
important to stay up to date on growing trends and how to apply them in our practice. Join us to discuss
tools and techniques that you and your colleagues can use daily to improve patient outcomes and

This workshop is intended to:
    • Identify classifications of polyps
