SPENC is the largest Endoscopy Nurses Conference in the US hosting more than 1000 attended each year.   Each year we hear about updates in general and therapeutic endoscopy from providers from Swedish Digestive Health, Providence Health and other key speakers from the Pacific Northwest. We are excited to expand the largest NW endoscopy nurses and associates conference to the rest of the country in this virtual platform to endoscopy nurses, techs, MAs, PAs, NPs, physicians and other interested health care practitioners across the country.

Didactic presentations on therapeutic ERCP, EUS, EGD and colonoscopies presented by Gastroenterologists from Swedish, Providence & Virginia Mason. Topics include those in general GI, therapeutic GI, pulmonary, bariatric, anesthesia, pathology and evolving business practices throughout COVID-19 and the age of social media. In-Person attendees will choose from 6 hands on workshops.  Virtual Attendees will see 3 pre-selected workshops and have a choice of several other pre-recorded sessions from prior years.  Workshops cover newer technology including esophageal stenting, polypectomy, hemostasis, EUS and infection prevention.
