Developed with nurses in mind – ESGE Days is also your congress!

Wendy Jo Carmel

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great enthusiasm that we are looking forward to coming together in DUBLIN for ESGE DAYS 2023, taking place on April 20 – 22, 2023. The scientific committee has worked tirelessly with the aim of developing the best operational approach to delivering scientific content in a comprehensive program that will showcase innovative ideas and practices for everyone working in the field of endoscopy.

The success of an endoscopy unit is reliant upon a well-functioning multidisciplinary team working together towards a common goal of safe and effective patient care. The ESGE and ESGENA strongly believe that it is ideal when the endoscopy team learns together and train together.

Based on this principle, the ESGENA Spring School is an integral part of the ESGE DAYS and has a lot to offer to the endoscopic nursing community:

• Joined sessions for physicians and nurses with interactive discussions, debates and live demonstrations

• special sessions for nurses focusing on patient care, assistance and management issues

Explore the program online here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin.

Warmest Regards,
Wendy Jo Carmel

President ESGENA
