Social networking-based discussion group used to share ERCP-related topics

A study in the most recent issue of the European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology examines activities in a social networking-based discussion group by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography doctors.

Online social networking is increasingly being used among medical practitioners.

However, few studies have evaluated its use in therapeutic endoscopy.

Dr Xiaoyua Kang and colleagues analyzed the shared topics and activities of a group of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) doctors in a social networking-based endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group.

The team invited 6 ERCP trainers working in Xijing Hospital, and 48 graduated endoscopists who had finished ERCP training in the same hospital to join in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group.

214 ERCP-related topics were shared
European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology

All group members were informed not to divulge any private information of patients when using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group.

The researchers retrospectively extracted activities of group members on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group.

The individual data of the graduated endoscopists were collected by a questionnaire.

From 2014 to 2015, 6924 messages were posted on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group, half of which were ERCP related.

In total, the team found that 214 ERCP-related topics were shared, which could be categorized into 3 types, including sharing experience/cases, asking questions, and sharing literatures/advances.

Among the 48 graduated endoscopists, the researchers observed that 21 had a low case volume of less than 50 per year, and 27 had a high volume case volume of 50 or more.

The researchers noted that high-volume graduated endoscopists posted more ERCP-related messages, and shared more discussion topics compared with low-volume graduated endoscopists.

The research team showed that endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group was useful for graduated endoscopists in ERCP performance and management of post-ERCP complications.

Dr Kang's team concludes, "A wide range of ERCP-related topics were shared on the social networking-based endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group."

"The ERCP-related behaviors on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography discussion group were more active in graduated endoscopists with an ERCP case volume of more than 50 per year."
