Endoscopy e-Learning Programme
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive medical procedure that is generally well-tolerated by patients. It is often used as a diagnostic tool to identify the cause of symptoms such as abdominal pain, bleeding or difficulty in swallowing. It may also be used to monitor and treat certain medical conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease or early-stage cancers.
This online medical course covers all the core areas that practitioners must understand to work safely and effectively in the field. It is suitable for all healthcare professionals who work in endoscopy around the world.
You can view many videos from endoscopy examinations. This will help you put the learning into a practical context and reinforce your understanding on the key themes. You can also analyse a variety of visual information. This information is like CT scans, cross-sectional diagrams, images from barium studies and photographs, to help build your knowledge.
Practical learning for practitioners globally
The programme has a practical focus throughout. With interactive case studies, you can test your knowledge using various patient scenarios and then find out whether you have made a correct diagnosis or taken the correct course of action.
The content is arranged into short learning sessions, with each session taking around 30 minutes to complete – so it can be fitted around your other professional commitments.
Study at your own pace
You can select sessions that are relevant to your training or specialist interests and complete these in any order. The programme is primarily designed for training and induction in endoscopy either as pre-learning or for use alongside lectures and practical work. However, it can also be used for continuing professional development.
This online endoscopy training programme consists of a number of modules, each of which is divided into smaller learning sessions. Each learning session takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
Modules on core endoscopy skills, OGD, flexi sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy cover topics such as the role of endoscopy, consent, patient centred care, risk assessment, safe diathermy, safe sedation and complications
There is a module dedicated to JETS Workforce that is designed for endoscopy nurses and those performing an equivalent role. It includes sessions on pre-assessment, infection control, decontamination and improving quality and safety.
Further modules on capsule endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound cover these more specialist areas of endoscopy.
