Acting on member feedback we have made significant changes to the traditional AUGIS programme for the 2019 Liverpool meeting.
The meeting starts Wednesday 25th September at lunchtime. The afternoon is a plenary session with key note talks from Mr David Sellu and Mr Brendan Moran, including a session on emergency upper GI surgery and AUGIS prize papers. The afternoon ends with a symposium looking at the impact of the recent pension changes.
The Thursday has been entirely revamped and now has 3 all day parallel streams – benign OG and bariatrics, malignant OG and HPB. Within each stream there is a trainee session, free papers, and sessions for both the specialist and generalist. These sessions have all been staggered to allow a delegate to move between the streams. For example, a trainee on Thursday can attend all the designated trainee sessions. This change has significantly increased the content of the meeting and hopefully meets the needs of all our members.
On Friday morning the day starts with a talk from Professor John Windsor from Auckland and we come back together for two plenary sessions. The first examines how to cope with the pressures of surgery and its impact on work and life balance. The final session addresses important biliary issues that affect us all.
We hope to see you all in Liverpool for what promises to be another successful AUGIS meeting.

The CNS/AHP programme will be held on the morning of Wednesday 25th September starting at 10.30am to allow for travel time. Our theme this year is “Assessment”, starting with an overview of how to assess and support a patient throughout their cancer journey from a clinical psychologist, followed by a very topical presentation on the assessment of frailty and the development of an upper GI/HPB Pre-operative frailty service delivered by a geriatrician. Finally, the morning ends with an assessment of a newly appointed CNS and dietician, exploring their expectations versus reality.
