Risk Analysis: Identifying Practice Gaps Utilizing Today’s Guidelines and Evidence Based Practice in Endoscope Reprocessing

Presented by CANTEL

This session will utilize the current established professional guidelines and best practices to develop a risk analysis of endoscope reprocessing. Each of the nine steps of flexible endoscope reprocessing will be evaluated and discussed to allow the participant to establish their current level of infection risk, exposure or transmission to patients, using evidence based practice to support each step.

I'm From Missouri, Show Me: Preparing for an Audit

Presented by CANTEL

When preparing for an audit, current methods of log books, printouts and data management systems still fall short in integrating all the required documentation. This faculty-directed continuing education activity will explore critical touchpoints that may be requested during an accreditation survey and be prepared to answer questions using risk analysis and guidelines.

New Strategies to Improve Polypectomy During Colonoscopy

Although nearly all gastroenterologists perform polypectomy, there is recent evidence that we're not doing polypectomy as well as we thought we were. Multiple studies have now shown that larger polyps, particularly those more than 1 cm and particularly sessile serrated polyps are incompletely removed by standard polypectomy techniques. In addition, lateral spreading polyps more than 2 cm require special techniques and skills to completely remove. Fortunately, there are new methods and tools to safely and effectively remove these polyps including endoscopic mucosal resection with pre-injection of the polyp with a submucosal cushion.
