UCL Upper GI Symposium (UGIS)

The upper GI field has expanded remarkably over the last decade or so with the advent of minimally invasive diagnostics, therapies, and devices. Coupled with better disease stratification and the need for multidisciplinary approach to management.

This course aims to provide a comprehensive, practical and up to date guide to decision making targeted at all GI healthcare providers including Gastroenterologists, GI Trainees, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Endoscopists, and Upper GI physiologists. The latest innovations will be highlighted by a world-renowned faculty in a series of interactive lectures and video demonstrations to maximise learning.

Learning Objectives

1- Summarise the latest State of the art multidisciplinary approaches to the evaluation and management of patients with:
• Dysphagia
- Oropharyngeal disorders (ENT, neuromuscular, mechanical (pouches/crico-pharyngeal spasm), functional)
- Oesophageal disorders (strictures, EoE, motility disorders)
• Reflux, heartburn and belching: functional vs organic causes
• Atypical reflux/LPR (Globus, throat clearing, hoarseness, chronic cough), inlet patches, other.
• Barrett’s oesophagus
• Non-cardiac chest pain
• Gastric polyps and H Pylori

2- Clarify common controversies in the diagnosis and management in certain scenarios such as:
• EoE (role of EndoFLIP, PPIs, diet, strict remission versus on-need therapy, etc)
• Management of benign refractory strictures
• Safety of long term PPI use in EoE, GORD and Barrett’s
• Testing and treatment pathways for patients with oropharyngeal symptoms
• Endoscopic versus surgical management of Zenker’s, achalasia and GORD

3- Emphasise the need for multidisciplinary approaches to those patients and the role of different specialties such as: dieticians, SALT, ENT, GI Physiology, GI radiology, GI surgery

Target audience

• 80-100 delegates
• Gastroenterologists, GI trainees, Nurses, Nurse practitioners, Nurse Endoscopists, and Upper GI physiologists
• Parallel morning session dedicated to patients with heartburn, Barrett’s oesophagus, and oesophageal neoplasia
