Endoscopy Pre-assessment

Friday, January 26, 2024 13:30 - 14:00

In this session, while there will be an overview of patient pathways and endoscopy procedures, the focus will remain in Endoscopy pre-assessment. Endoscopy pre-assessment has been proven to increase patient safety, reduce cancellations and increase concordance with bowel preparation instructions. However, not all Endoscopy Units have the facilities and/or resources to set it as part of their routine service and thus, it becomes relevant to see an example of how pre-assessment can work, its benefits, most common challenges and how to address these.
