Date set for first Colon Capsule Endoscopy International Conference
The first Colon Capsule Endoscopy (CCE) International Conference will take place on Thursday 21 April.
A hybrid event co-hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Delivery (CfSD) and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSE), sponsored by Medtronic, will take place both virtually and in person from the Royal College of Surgeons Offices in Edinburgh and Birmingham, and will bring together world renowned experts to share the latest developments in CCE technology, best practice and exciting developments for the future.
Commenting on the event CfSD Clinical Lead for CCE, Professor Angus Watson said: “We are extremely excited to be able to present the first ever CCE International Conference, sharing some of the most exciting developments around this innovative technology with healthcare professionals from across the UK and beyond.
“Events like this are really important for building a community of practice around CCE. Those that attend will learn from experts around the world, which in turn will help delegates improve care for the patients they serve.”
The day will offer a very varied programme, covering emerging evidence of the benefits of CCE from around the world, sharing lessons learned from our Scottish roll-out and examining future developments, delivery methods and the use of artificial intelligence.
The President of the Royal College of Surgeons, Professor Mike Griffin OBE, is delighted to support the conference: “This Royal College, throughout its 500-year history, has been at the forefront of advancing health care. Bowel cancer is a major cause of death throughout the world and anything we can do to diagnose the condition earlier will be of major benefit to patients across the globe.”
