This unique interactive online system allows for easy, simultaneous, almost instantaneous access to all the information contained in the OESO books.
There is at the moment no equivalent on the Web of the OESO Knowledge Interactive Information System: the largest data base and frame of reference devoted to esophagology.
The broad accessibility of such a wealth of information can be considered the culmination of OESO's original approach.
The OESO Foundation regularly organizes video-conferences between the members of its high level network to discuss clinical cases selected for their special didactic interest.
The debate is organized to stimulate controversy and to present a lively approach to the problems of diagnosis and treatment applied to a particular case. The recording of the discussions is used to illustrate in an original way, and to update, the answers given to certain questions of the data base. A CD-ROM is then made from the video, which is clearly of high educational interest for the updated picture it presents on a particular field of pathology. The Industry could be involved in this type of CME when the subject discussed corresponds to their field of activities.
These courses are accessible on the website of the OESO Foundation (www.oeso.foundation.org) by means of a password. They can be received by individuals or retransmitted in university lecture halls on a wide screen, with a picture of the lecturer inset within the image.
Here again, Pharmaceutical Companies and manufacturers of surgical instruments or endoscopic equipment can take part in courses pertaining to their field of specialization.
These activities are undertaken in the framework of the UNESCO Chair for distance learning.
