At Australian Gastroenterology Week this year, GESA are running a "generalist" Gastro-Hep update. This occurred for the first time in Brisbane last year with greater than 300 attendees. It is an opportunity for people NOT directly involved in Gastroenterology and Hepatology to hear from the experts at low cost with many topics covered and an opportunity to attend more of the meeting also if they are so minded.

There is a research opportunity for students who are keen to work with ICU Registrar Sam Gluck who is completing a PhD. The project involves data collection and the students involved would be part of the research team, receive training in research governance and the consent process, as well as be given a voluntary appointment with ICU research, and receive authorship on any manuscripts that originate from the project. The project involves using Google Maps Timeline data from patients' smartphones to assess patients' risk of readmission to hospital. The students would approach patients admitted under General Medicine at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and facilitate gathering this data from patients using their smartphone and several questionnaires. The students would be expected to attend the Royal Adelaide Hospital on rostered days to recruit patients.
