e-Endoscopy provides a key to endoscopy training

e-Endoscopy was successfully launched at the Annual British Society of Gastroenterology meeting in Liverpool in March 2010.

Developed by the Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (JAG) and elearning for healthcare, e-Endoscopy is a web-based interactive resource available to all NHS users.

The content is designed to support all aspects of endoscopy skills training and practice from the novice to the independent endoscopist and sub-specialty training. There is also a dedicated course for the nurse endoscopy assistant. Users have unlimited access to the courses and sessions within them, which offer comprehensive, formative and interactive learning.

e-Endoscopy provides users with both base knowledge and revision material. It is integrated into the new e-portfolio for endoscopy and is easily accessible via the JAG and the JAG Endoscopy Training System (JETS) websites.

A variety of sessions within the initial Foundation course, and Basic Upper GI and Basic Lower GI courses are now available. Information about access is available on the website at https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/endoscopy. New sessions will continue to be released throughout the year and all course content is due to be completed in 2012.

Professor Roger Barton, JAG Chairman, said, ‘This excellent project with its award-winning lineage will bring the essential knowledge that all high quality endoscopists need to the desktop. With modules for endoscopy nurses too, the easy-to-use content and integrated assessments are relevant and current, having been written by endoscopists for endoscopists. If only it had been around when I was learning endoscopy.’

A downloadable user guide is available to provide help and advice. It covers areas relating to initial registration and log on, through to ideas about integrating the e-Endoscopy learning material into endoscopy training.

Anyone who is interested in becoming involved in developing the content or is already involved in endoscopy is encouraged to register and use the educational material provided.
