CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION
EDUCATIONAL MISSION STATEMENT: The educational mission of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is to:
- Advance understanding of normal development, physiology and pathophysiology of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and nutrition in children.
- Improve professional competence, quality of care, and patient outcomes by disseminating knowledge through scientific meetings, professional, and public education.
Our activities, education, and interventions will strive to use Adult Learning Methods (ALM) designed to improve competence, practice performance, and patient outcomes in measurable ways. These educational activities will be targeted to pediatric gastroenterologists, physicians with an expertise in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition, subspecialty fellows in pediatric gastroenterology, and nurses specializing in pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition.
Annual Meeting Objectives:
To improve clinical competence and performance by:
- Being acquainted with new discoveries in the pathophysiology of gastrointestinal, pancreatic, hepatobiliary and nutrition- related diseases.
- Exposure to state-of-the art techniques that can be applied to the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and nutrition-related diseases.
- Becoming more familiar with the changing health care environment, the regulatory process by which new discoveries come to application, and the importance of advocacy and ethics in the practice of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.
