Introduction

 

The 35th GEEW will take place at the Brussels Exhibition Centre, in the Auditorium 2000, from Monday, June 19, to Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

Started in 1983 and held every year in June, this meeting has become established as one of the largest European Workshops in its field, gathering around 700 participants coming from 60 to 65 different countries worldwide.

The course is held in the AUDITORIUM 2000, a comfortable half circled meeting room garanteing good visibility of the large screens.

  

This meeting is designed for endoscopists and gastroenterologists but also for physicians in training as well as for nurses and GI assistants. It will include live video demonstrations permitting interchanges between faculty and registrants during procedures, using interactive personal computer assistance, lectures and quizzes.

To encourage interactive discussion, GEEW Questions and Answers time will be scheduled, leaded by a group of experts, to clarify and discuss the live cases and the topic of the session.  Simultaneous translation into French will be provided.

 

 

The audio-visual transmission to the Brussels Exhibition Centre will be broadcast live from 4 endoscopic suites located at Erasme Hospital and each procedure will be performed by international expert physicians selected for their outstanding teaching capabilities in collaboration with members of the local staff.

All over the procedures, information summarizing the most recent publications will be displayed to reinforce the discussion based on scientific evidence.

 

 

 

The overall goal of this course is to provide information about current technology and to enhance knowledge in gastroenterology and endotherapy. Moreover, new techniques and new accessories will be demonstrated and discussed with the audience. In controversial cases, a consensus will be sought by means of the interactive electronic voting system.

Endotherapy is becoming more and more complex and fascinating new technologies have been implemented over the last few years. All of these will be demonstrated and future prospects will be discussed during live demontrations and State of the Art lectures.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels in June 2017.
