The eighth edition of the Quality of Endoscopy symposia series was dedicated to upper gastrointestinal tract neoplasms. As with all previous meetings, the focus of this event was to provide an interactive and inclusive environment to foster discussion and enhance the learning experience. The faculty from ESGE and ESDO worked hard to produce a well-rounded, multidisciplinary programme reflective of the multifaceted challenges faced when treating Upper GI neoplasia.

“The multidisciplinary and diverse perspectives were greatly enhanced by ESDO’s participation” said Mário Dinis Ribeiro, the ESGE symposium Co-Chair. “The presentation of the of the Key Quality Measures in upper GI endoscopy was the finale of the symposium, representing the culmination of a long-term Quality Improvement Committee project”.

ESGE is committed to continually developing their educational activities to meet the needs of clinicians. The addition of the Academic Skills Course on the Thursday before the main symposium offered physicians the change to hone their academic skills with topics including statistics and manuscript preparation. The small group size encouraged discussion and enhanced the learning experience. The positive feedback regarding this new feature means that it will be integrated into future Quality in Endoscopy events.

The hands-on training session on Sunday, again proved to be a resounding success. The small group numbers resulting in high contact time with the experts makes this a very popular aspect of the Quality in Endoscopy events.

The recorded material from this meeting will be showcased on the ESGE and UEG online learning platforms. ESGE members and meeting participants will be able to access this information free of charge (all others can view the footage for a small fee).

The recorded material from this meeting will be showcased soon. For now,
