About the Endoscopy programme

The Endoscopy e-learning programme is a free e-learning resource for Endoscopists.

The initial sessions created for the Core Endoscopy course are (some of these sessions are still in production and will be available soon):

  • e-Induction for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • Role of Endoscopy
  • Consent for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • The Normal Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Examination
  • Patient Centred Care
  • Risk Assessment for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • Complications of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • Safe Sedation for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • Safe Diathermy for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • The Videoendoscope and Endoscopic Image
  • Enhanced Detection of Gastrointestinal Pathology
  • Endoscopic Examination of the Lower Gastrointestinal Tract
  • Decontamination of Gastrointestinal Endoscopes
  • Resolving Loop Formation in Lower Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
  • Management of the Endoscopy Unit
  • Quality Assurance for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

The interactive sessions of e-learning are designed to enhance and blend with existing teaching within Endoscopy and have been reviewed by JAG members.

Each session of e-learning takes around 30 minutes to complete and can fit in with busy work/study schedules, and can be used:

  • As a reference tool
  • To revisit topics to refresh learning
  • As directed preparation for a formal education session

The Endoscopy e-learning programme is working on creating a link to automatically record completed sessions from the e-LfH Hub to your JET e-Portfolio.

More information

The Core Endoscopy courses form part of a wider aim to provide learning resources to address the knowledge-based competencies of endoscopists and endoscopy assistants. Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare have partnered with the Joint Advisory Group (the JAG) to develop further learning resources that are linked to common therapeutic procedures such as polypectomy and the management of upper GI bleeding. It is intended that these resources will build over time to provide a catalogue of e-learning that can be accessed on demand.

Sample session

The Endoscopy e-learning programme offers knowledge based sessions covering a wide range of topics. The sessions feature graphics, animations, video and interactive exercises. Trainees can work through any session relevant to their specific needs, in any order they choose.
