This workshop will center on a hands-on equipment demonstration focusing on basic ERCP and its accessories. The diagnostic and therapeutic components associated with ERCP will be broken down using a step-by-step approach. The goal of this workshop is to develop through return demonstration an understanding of the equipment used and its effect. Demonstrations will include initial cannulation, catheter and guidewire exchanges, guidewire manipulation, plastic stent placement, sphincterotomy, occlusion retrieval balloons, and balloon and catheter dilations.

In keeping with the tradition of the Annual Course, we hope the following abstracts will encourage discussions for improving nursing practice and patient care outcomes.
