The 7th Annual Endoscopy Skills Day of Practicing Endoscopists and Their Teams was held January 20-22 at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff , Alberta. RPAP has been a proud sponsor of this event for three years.
The weekend is designed to improve the practice skills and quality of care for physicians and their teams providing endoscopic services; this year’s weekend was attended by close to 100 physicians, nurses, and other team members. The learning focus was reflected in the theme for this year ‘Quality is #1’.
The learning for the weekend is developed by a multi-disciplinary team from Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia, and focuses on providing information on best practices, evidence based practice improvement, as well as updates on new endoscopic technology. The program for the weekend is structured around opening keynote speakers from the organizing committee and faculty presentations from practitioners, break out groups focused on specific topics such as more effective use of technology, and presentation of research findings. University of Alberta Faculty of Family Medicine serves as the secretariat for the weekend.
