"The evolution of endoscopy into a more therapeutic endeavor has resulted in a need for a wider diversity of skills necessary to choreograph the patient care process cycle in endoscopy. The demands for more efficiency while maintaining the utmost standards in patient care makes the timing of this edition of the manual even more germane. This manual is a "must have" for those who are newly exposed to the endoscopy unit. It contains all the rudiments necessary for developing skill set guides and standard operating procedures manuals for any units or operating rooms involved in gastrointestinal endoscopy."
