The content of the course is dynamic, addressing the fundamentals of quality and safe practice as well as emerging trends and evidence. Topics include: defining and measuring quality in endoscopy, recommendations for improving the quality in endoscopy units, a review of ASGE and CDC quality-related guidelines, and reprocessing.
