Endoscopy programme goes livePublished: Tuesday, 25 June 2019
Endoscopists can now access new high-quality e-learning thanks to eIntegrity.
The Endoscopy e-Learning Programme covers all the core knowledge and skills needed to work safely and effectively in endoscopy. Learners can access sessions on a wide range of themes, from performing an examination through to safe sedation, risks, complications and patient-centred care.
Gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy plays a vital role in the diagnosis of many conditions, including life-threatening illnesses. The demand for endoscopy is increasing globally due to the emphasis on early and more accurate diagnosis of conditions, a higher uptake of screening and increased patient expectations. For this reason, there is a real demand for high-quality training and learning in this area. The Endoscopy e-Learning Programme helps to address that need.
The content has a strong practical focus – with many videos showing various endoscopic procedures and techniques, as well as images such as CT scans and cross-sectional diagrams to help illustrate key points.
The programme is available online so learners can work through the sessions at their own pace – fitting the training around their busy lives. It is also highly interactive and visual – helping learners to understand the practical aspects involved in endoscopy.
The content has been written by practising clinicians – many of whom work as trainers in the endoscopy field. The Endoscopy e-learning is primarily aimed at trainees, but it is also a useful resource for continuing professional development.
This e-learning programme offers the perfect complement to face-to-face training and textbook learning.
Importantly, the content has been developed by leading specialists in the UK. So, as a learner, you can benefit from the UK’s investment in world-leading training resources.
