Oesophageal disease is one of the most common chronic problems
managed in general practice. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are first
line therapy for GORD because they offer rapid symptom relief and
oesophageal healing resulting in lower total drug and consultation
costs. This online learning module uses a case-based approach to
review gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) in particular therapy
with proton pump inhibitors for moderate-to-severe disease and
complications. Meet Kevin, a 53-year-old male prescribed a PPI for
intermittent heart burn and acid reflux (3–4 times per week). Within a
day or two of the last pill, Kevin began to experience epigastric pain,
burning sensation, and acid taste in his mouth. He had occasional
choking episodes at night. Since his wife left him he has been gaining
weight and drinking and smoking with his mates more than usual.
Review treatment protocols and patient management options based on
expert opinion and the latest evidence.

At the conclusion of this online learning module you will be able to:
  • Understand the presentation and management of moderate-to-severe GORD
  • Diagnose and treat oesophageal strictures
  • Diagnose and treat of Barrett’s oesophagus and its role as a precursor to oesophageal adenocarcinoma.
  • Understand the role Helicobacter pylori may play in Barrett’s oesophagus and patient safety.
