About the Endoscopy programme

The Endoscopy e-learning programme is a free e-learning resource for health and care professionals working in endoscopy. It has been developed by Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (JAG) working in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH).

The initial sessions created for the core endoscopy course are shown below:

  • 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

The JETS Workforce course designed to support the foundation level of the JETS Workforce e-portfolio comprises the following sessions:

  • ENDO 1 Patient Pre-assessment for GI Endoscopy
  • ENDO 1 Infection Control

The interactive sessions of e-learning are designed to enhance and blend with existing teaching within endoscopy. Each session of e-learning takes around 30 minutes to complete and can fit in with busy work and study schedules.

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.
