New content added to the e-Endoscopy programme

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has been working with the Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy at the Royal College of Physicians to add new content to the Endoscopy elearning programme.

The e-Endoscopy programme provides an interactive learning resource for health professionals involved in the delivery of endoscopy services. The courses cover a range of subject areas that are linked to knowledge competencies required by endoscopists, endoscopy trainers and endoscopy nurses and have been carefully aligned with existing recommendations for endoscopy training in the UK.

The Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) course is aimed at endosonographers undertaking or planning to undertake endoscopic ultrasound-guided tissue sampling by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) or fine-needle biopsy (FNB).

The Endoscopic Non-Technical Skills (ENTS) course provides a comprehensive overview of the communication, teamwork, leadership, situational awareness, judgement, and decision-making skills necessary to undertake endoscopy effectively. It is recommended by the Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy that all clinicians working in endoscopy complete these modules. The course includes the following sessions:

  • Endoscopic Non-Technical Skills
  • Respiratory Depression: Communication, Teamwork & Leadership
  • Perforation in Endoscopy: Situational Awareness & Judgement and Decision Making
  • Upper GI Bleed: ENTS in Action
