Activity Details
Activity Name: 11th Annual Gastroenterology & Hepatology Symposium
Description: Annual GI/Hep Symposium at Disneyland!
Needs Assessment: Description: There is an extensive yet inconsistent body of literature reporting on the prevalence of adenomatous polyps (adenomas) and colorectal cancer among average risk individuals. The objectives of our study were to determine the pooled prevalence of adenomas and colorectal cancer, as well as nonadvanced and advanced adenomas, among average risk North Americans. (Clinical Gastroenterology Hepatology)
Improvements made to the agenda based on previous year's evaluation summaries. Overall, 99.05% felt the course was responsive to their needs, and 97.14% felt the activity was relevant to their practice. Comments for the symposium stated, "Will incorporate more of these advanced techniques into my practice"; "I will consider endoscopic treatment of obesity more".
