SIES 2024 will see an enhanced nursing program centred around a dedicated state-of-the-art auditorium for our nurses that means a significant expansion in seating capacity.  Nurse-specific lectures and the majority of the Live Endoscopy transmission that includes a new Live Endoscopy Nurses’ hands camera can be appreciated from this auditorium. Our nurses hands-on workshops will cover a range of highly-relevant skills in GI endoscopy nursing (see program for details). Spots will be limited, and a small additional fee will apply for this enriched experience. As evident on the program, please note group A will take place over two one-hour sessions (09:30-10:30 and 14:00-15:00) and group B will run for two consecutive hours (1100-1300).
