About this online course

Dyspepsia is one of the most frequent symptoms presenting to both primary care and gastroenterology clinics, and presents a significant economic burden.

This UEG online learning course on dyspepsia brings together a multi-disciplinary team of international experts to deliver a course set over 4 modules. It is envisaged that both learners new to gastroenterology and experienced clinicians will benefit from a state-of-the-art update in this important topic. The learner will be able to observe experts undertaking patient interviews, and then undertake a series of topics on all aspects of dyspepsia from diagnosis through to management.

Learning objectives

  • Be able to take a detailed history from a patient presenting with dyspepsia
  • Be able to distinguish typical dyspeptic symptoms from GERD and IBS symptoms
  • Define the role of H. pylori in dyspepsia and peptic ulcer disease, including diagnosis and eradication
  • Define functional dyspepsia in terms of postprandial distress syndrome (PDS) and epigastric pain syndrome (EPS)

This course is suitable for all gastroenterologists dealing with a variety of gastrointestinal conditions, as well as dietitians, nutritionists, psychologists, speech pathologists and any other healthcare professionals involved in a feeding team.
