Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a highly prevalent condition that negatively impacts quality of life and confers considerable healthcare costs. Although various symptoms are associated with GORD, none are characteristic for diagnosis of the disease.
This online course covers needs in the diagnosis of GORD, symptoms and questionnaires, the PPI test, endoscopy and biopsies, reflux monitoring, oesophageal manometry, barium studies and other biomarkers. Conclusive, inconclusive and paediatric GORD are also considered.
This course is suitable for gastroenterologists in training and physicians and surgeons in other disciplines, as well as nurses, biotechnicians and advanced-years’ medical students who have an interest in gastroenterology.
