COURSE DESCRIPTION

It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to Updates In Gastrointestinal Practice Guidelines Guidelines For The Family Physician . This is the second year that gutCARE Digestive · Liver · Endoscopy Associates is partnering with College of Family Physicians Singapore (CFPS) as part of our ongoing commitment to advance and facilitate learning for family physicians in the rapidly evolving field of gastroenterology. This year’s meeting provides a unique learning experience with a programme jointly led by gastroenterologists with sub-speciality interest and family physician faculty.

Our aim is to equip family physicians with knowledge of the most up-to-date evidence that has altered clinical practice, whilst focusing on outcomes that family physicians care about. We hope this translates into improved patient care and population health. This year’s meeting features case discussions, self assessment exercises and interactive sessions with speakers on each topic. Following the meeting, participants will also have access to online links to learning material discussed in the meeting.

Join us for an exciting afternoon of learning whilst catching up with friends and colleagues.
