Successful Training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy provides trainee gastroenterologists
with the exact set of skills required to perform endoscopy to the level required
by the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) in order to practice
gastroenterology. Gastroenterologists will also find this a useful tool to brush
up on their endoscopic skills and to familiarise themselves with new trends
in safety and competence while performing endoscopy.
With contributions from internationally recognized leaders in endoscopy education, each chapter examines the specific skills sets and procedure related tasks which must be mastered in learning a particular technique. They contain specific descriptions of accessories required, standard training methods for the particular procedure, and optimal utilization of novel learning modalities such as simulators. Quality measures and objective parameters for competency for each procedure are considered, together with available tools for assessing competency once training has been completed.
An accompanying DVD includes with the text, annotated high definition video of both actual procedures and ex-vivo animal model simulations to illustrate proper techniques in a step by step fashion and demonstrate common mistakes and improper technique.
