4th PEDTW

General Information

General Information

This is the fourth three-day high-level workshop in the fields of pediatric gastroenterology, endoscopy and overall therapeutic pediatric endoscopy.
We offer this unique opportunity for hands-on experience with endoscopic therapeutic techniques and their clinical application in children. The local and invited national and international guest faculty comprises recognized experts and leaders in pediatric gastroenterology and digestive therapeutic endoscopy.

The faculty members will show their experience during the endoscopic procedures and short lectures. There will be a mixture of light presentations on current topics, review lectures, and presentations on controversial issues, with transmission of live procedures from the endoscopic suite to the conference hall. Everyone is welcome to observe, without filters or simulations, different and complex therapeutic endoscopic procedures, followed by full and extensive discussions of different aspects of the procedures (e.g. indications, complications, different options, technical aspects) with the faculty in the hall and in the endoscopic suite.
The live endoscopic procedures will be performed by the faculty experts. At the European Endoscopic Training Centre (EETC), Catholic University School of Medicine, Rome, there will be personal hands-on endoscopy simulation training stations, for therapeutic procedures using animal models and electronic simulators. Participants, both nurses and doctors, will use instruments and accessories under the supervision of faculty experts.
The course language is English.
