This ASP aims to provide practitioners with specialist knowledge in upper GI physiology. Practitioners will be proficient in oesophageal manometry, 24hr pH and impedance monitoring, enabling them to practice within a Gastrointestinal Physiology department specialising in upper GI physiology. This course is designed for scientists from other specialisms, nurses and other healthcare professionals who are working in the GI field but have not received formalised training in GI as a specialist area. AGIP support this ASP as a route to accreditation as an independent practitioner to ensure patient safety standards are upheld.
