Evidence-Based Current Surgical Practice Manuscripts

A key goal of the 2011 strategic plan of the Society for Surgery of Alimentary Tract (J Gastrointest Surg 2001; 15: 1077-1085) was to accelerate efforts to meet the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and continuing medical education (CME) needs of the membership. Starting in 2012 the SSAT Health Care Quality and Outcomes Committee began soliciting authoritative manuscripts of topics that correspond to the annual MOC course held in conjunction with Digestive Disease Week, as well as a limited number of additional specific topics. These manuscripts represent an expert interpretation of the latest evidence on best surgical practice and treatment of particular surgical conditions of the alimentary tract. These Evidence-based Current Surgical Practice Manuscripts are published in the society’s Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery (JOGS) and are freely available to SSAT Members and non-members alike for a limited time only.
