It is well established that most colon cancers arise from colon polyps. By identifying and removing colon polyps during colonoscopy, we can prevent their progression to cancer and ultimately save lives. This CNE activity will present information on the management of lesions/polyps in the Gl Tract. It is expected that participants will be able to identify Gl tract polyps and the various advanced techniques required for management.
This CNE activity is intended primarily for RNs with a responsibility for or an interest in endoscopic polyp management and ensuring safe patient care in the endoscopy suite. The presentation will also be of interest to allied healthcare personnel and MDs involved in endoscopy.
Upon completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
Describe characteristics of Gl lesions/polyps encountered in the Gl Suite
Discuss advanced Polypectomy techniques, including EMR and ESD
Explain the use of lifting and tattooing agents used in the management of Gl lesions/polyps in the Gl Suite
