Mistakes in the endoscopic diagnosis and management of Barrett’s oesophagus and how to avoid them

At some point in their clinical practice, gastroenterologists and endoscopists are likely to encounter Barrett’s oesophagus. Authors Rehan Haidry and Cormac Magee highlight the need for careful endoscopic assessment and management to reduce the risk of progression to oesophageal adenocarcinoma, but also stress the need to prevent patients from becoming unduly concerned. Mistakes covered include overdiagnosis of Barrett’s oesophagus, allowing insufficient time to inspect the oesophagus, taking biopsy samples when the Barrett’s segment is inflamed and losing patients to follow up.

Dear Member of the National Societies Forum,

I am writing to follow up on the group work on Activity Grants “Standards & guidelines initiatives” during the National Societies Forum meeting in January. We hope you already spread this information among your society, but just in case I would like to remind you that the application is open and we would very much appreciate to receive an application from you.

UEG will support guideline initiatives in 2018 with up to € 40,000 per proposal:

· Type A: Dissemination of existing guidelines and standards included in the UEG Standards & Guidelines Repository
If the guideline you want to work with is not included in the repository yet, please submit it to UEG as soon as possible and note that the review process can take up to 4 weeks.
Ideas for dissemination brainstormed during the meeting include (but are not limited to): translation of guidelines, production of audio books, webinar with case-based discussions, evaluation how guidelines are followed in a specific country, development of guidelines that may be used by patients or nurses based on the original medical guidelines, courses on how to work and live with guidelines,…

· Type B: Development of new clinical practice guidelines in selected areas (in cooperation with a UEG Ordinary Specialist Member Society)

Deadline for applications: April 13, 2018.

All details for application, as well as the application form are available here (Pillar “Standards & Guidelines initiatives”). Completing the application is easy and will not take a lot of time.

To further spread the word about the UEG Activity Grants, I am sending you the promotional slide attached (both in 4:3 and 16:9 format) and kindly ask you to include this during presentations (e.g. at your national congress, other meetings in the next month) to make more people aware of the funding opportunities of UEG. All National Societies Forum Members can also find further promotional slides in their myUEG accounts (Boards & Committees – Templates). If you need any additional promotional material, please just let us know.

Best regards,

Elisabeth

How to write a good abstract

Although abstracts consist of a few sentences only, a good abstract requires a lot of attention. Failing to write a clear and convincing abstract may result in losing the possibility to present your results. As in everything, practice makes perfect, so do not waste any opportunities and when the chance arises aim for the best possible version.

The current Young GI Angle article in UEG Journal News Section provides you with great tips on abstract writing. Check it out!
