Event Description

Registration will open at 09.30, with the course starting at 10.00. The course will finish at 16.00.

Your last appointment’s reason reads “Still vomiting, no better”.  What can you do differently to diagnose this case and avoid passing the patient back to someone else?

This course will help you decipher the gastrointestinal clues from the presentation, history and clinical examination to narrow down the huge list of potential causes, consequently allowing you to define which of the many diagnostic tests available will help to give your clients an answer.

Taking a better history, deciding on the right tests at the right time, right through to the latest evidence on dietary management will all be covered by using challenging real-life cases. Finally there will be discussion around the often difficult decision to take biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract, and ensuring that if you take this step, the results will really benefit your patient.

After attending this course you will be able to:

• Take an accurate and focused history from your gastrointestinal cases
• Understand the causes of acute and chronic vomiting
• Confidently approach the case of chronic vomiting
• Define the causes of acute and chronic diarrhoea
• Use a logical approach to diagnosing chronic diarrhoea cases

Please note - if you want to book three courses for the price of two please call Jessica Wachtel on 020 7908 6336.
