App will give conference delegates on the go access to the programme, enable participation in learning activities during sessions the post-conference the app will update surgeons on the latest research via push notifications

The European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) has launched a new mobile application to enable an enhanced interactive experience for delegates at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Society in Berlin, Germany. This year’s programme includes keynote sessions from leaders in the surgical field including from Prof Yves Panis, Prof Nicolas Demartines and Mr Brendan Moran. Sessions will cover topics ranging from minimally invasive surgery for ulcerative colitis, to treating early colorectal cancer to enhanced recovery programmes after surgery.

For the first time, delegates will be able to participate in interactive learning activities through the app during both keynote and symposium sessions to make this year’s conference experience the best yet.

“The new app will help bring this year’s conference in Berlin into the 21st century by using technology to ensure that delegates have more opportunities to interact with the sessions and speakers than ever before,” said ESCP President, Emmanuel Tiret. “It will also help delegates to get the most from the programme by providing easily accessible information on the go.”

Following the conference, the app will allow members to revisit their favourite sessions and access a range of learning materials to help enhance their surgical skills and keep up to date with the latest developments in coloproctology research via push notifications throughout the year.

This is the very first global coloproctology society app, and a major educational advance by the society to provide a simple access point to the wealth of ESCP resources for busy colorectal surgeons.

Amongst the resources available through the app will be the society's new Manual of Coloproctology, the society’s guidelines and direct access to the monthly international journal "Colorectal Disease" where members can read and comment on the latest breaking and cutting-edge research in the specialty.
