Last week, you met Henry, a 67-year-old man who was seen for rectal bleeding and who had an Hgb of 9. He tells you that he had a normal screening colonoscopy just 1 year ago. Now workup reveals a sigmoid cancer. How could this happen? How can we prevent this from occurring in other patients? Let's learn about "alarm symptoms," key colon cancer risk factors, "interval cancer," the latest alternatives to colonoscopy and ways to ensure that our patients stay on their colon cancer screening schedules.

How many times have you been frustrated when you review your patient's abnormal liver function tests? Is it Hepatitis A, B, C, a medication side effect or Fatty Liver Disease?

Are statins OK in your patient?

How do we choose between ASA and Acetaminophen in chronic liver disease?

  • Confidently assess patients presenting with acute and chronic abdominal pain
  • Understand the latest treatments for Clostridium Difficile
