11th Annual “State of the Gut” An Update on Gastrointestinal Disorders

Brookfield, WI US
September 28, 2018

Primary care providers as well as physician extenders and nurses frequently encounter gastrointestinal and hepatic disorders in the populations they treat. There have been advances in this area and due to the large amount of medical information available to providers, it is challenging to stay up to date. This is frequently manifested in referrals where inappropriate diagnostic studies and therapies are utilized. These frequently delay appropriate management and may result in harm to the patients. In addition, our faculty receive various communications from providers requesting recommendations to manage this population.
