New Telephone Assessment for Colorectal STT e-learning now available
Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has developed a new e-learning programme on the Telephone Assessment for Colorectal Straight-to-test pathway (STT).
The NHS England Rapid cancer diagnostic and assessment pathways guidance features nurse-led assessment as a core element of the colorectal cancer STT pathway. This assessment can be carried out via a telephone consultation and the e-learning prepares nurses to undertake this role.
The training is suitable for experienced colorectal nurses or endoscopists who will be undertaking telephone assessment for colorectal cancer STT pathways as part of their clinical role.
The e-learning programme consists of six modules:

  • Introduction to telephone assessment and the STT pathway
  • Assessment: symptoms
  • Assessment: co-morbidities and functional status
  • ┬áConsent
  • Undertaking the telephone assessment
  • Wrap up: what happens next for patient and for trainee

To complete the course, learners need to complete both the above modules and undertake observed triaged phone calls which will be approved by a supervisor from their own department. This e-learning course includes downloadable guidance for learners and departments as well as documentation for learners to record their progress.

More information, including access details, is available on the programme page.

e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and Professional Bodies
