GI Essentials: IBS & IBD, Post-Weight-Reduction Surgery, Abdominal Pain, Fatty Liver Disease is organized by Fitzgerald Health Education Associates (FHEA) and will be held on Oct 28, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta North/Alpharetta, Alpharetta, Georgia, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6 Contact Hours. Description: Increase your primary care gastroenterology knowledge with GI Essentials. GI expert and national speaker, Bruce D. Askey, MS, ANP-BC will help you learn to differentiate and manage challenging GI conditions. Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Differentiation and Treatment: Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the most common diagnoses seen in primary care, as well as gastroenterology specialty practices. Irritable bowel syndrome is a benign, but life-altering, condition that is commonly confused with inflammatory bowel disease, which can lead to potentially life-threatening complications such as malignancy. The pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of both conditions will be explored, as well as how to differentiate between the two pathologies and potential complications. Primary Care Management of Patients Post-Weight-Reduction Surgery: Paralleling the obesity epidemic, gastric bypass and sleeve surgeries are being performed with increasing frequency in the United States. Often, chronic management of patients after weight-reduction surgery falls to the primary care provider. Routine management, as well as potential complications of weight-reduction surgery in this population, will be discussed. In addition, in light of the fact that weight-reduction surgery is ineffective if proper diet and exercise patterns are not developed, these topics will also be discussed. Abdominal Pain: Differential Diagnosis: Abdominal pain is a common presenting complaint. A systematic approach to breaking down symptoms of abdominal pain and arriving at a diagnosis will be explored. Appropriate diagnostic testing will also be discussed. Fatty Liver Disease Assessment and Management: Smash the Nash: Fatty liver disease, the hepatic component of metabolic syndrome, is becoming increasingly prevalent in clinical practice. Pathophysiology, diagnosis, potential complications, and management will be explored.

Credits: AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ (MD, DO) (12.50 hours), Non-Physician Attendance (RN, NP, PA and Others) (12.50 hours), ABIM MOC Part 2 (12.50 hours) Overview: This interactive, didactic experience serves as a review to aid the clinical practice for gastroenterologists, hepatologists, advanced practice providers and gastroenterology fellows to aid in patient management, including virtually all aspects of clinical gastroenterology, hepatology and endoscopy. This course has been developed to meet the educational needs of practicing gastroenterologists and GI fellows who wish to test their knowledge of specific GI topics in preparation for earning points toward the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, or who simply want to improve their knowledge of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders to enhance the quality of their practice. The course will follow the blueprint developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Each content category – esophagus, stomach/duodenum, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, small intestine and colon – will explore anatomy, development and function/physiology; symptoms/clinical presentation; and the diseases and disorders in each. This will include the use of endoscopy, including colonoscopy, ERCP and EUS. Participants will have the option of earning up to 12.5 MOC points with successful completion of a self-assessment module. A distinguishing feature of this conference is the fact that the course content is delivered over the course of only one and a half days. The course directors for this conference recognize that long and detailed discussions that are not directly relevant to board and re-certification exams should be eliminated. Conversely, many board review manuals provide lists and bullet points that lack sufficient background and context. To address the needs of busy gastroenterologists, this conference will present high-yield information in the most rational, relevant and contextually appropriate format. This is a time-tested approach that has led to wide dissemination and success of the speakers’ own textbook series, which serves as a blueprint for this educational offering. This course also serves as an intense review of gastroenterology and hepatology to enhance the clinical practice of all GI providers. Objectives: • Identify risk factors for and apply strategies to prevent gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary disorders • Retain and apply clinical “pearls” to diagnose complex GI disorders and identify and integrate therapeutic options based on pathophysiology, classification, guidelines and best clinical practice recommendations • Demonstrate competence in certification and recertification exams in gastroenterology as required by the American Board of Internal Medicine
