JAG have developed a comprehensive set of core endoscopy e-learning modules to support training. These are hosted and accessed via the e- learning for health platform.


Available sessions

 The sessions that are currently live are:




Role of Endoscopy

This session covers issues determining the appropriateness of the use of endoscopy.

Consent for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

This session explores the issues surrounding informed consent, capacity and the duty of care the endoscopist has in ensuring the standards for informed consent are properly applied. It provides a suggested structure for obtaining consent and gives examples from clinical practice to test the application of these principles.

The Normal Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Examination

This course aims to help understand how the endoscopic appearance encountered during a standard upper gastrointestinal (GI) examination relates to the local 3-D anatomy and also describes normal variants. Images and videos illustrate these endoscopic features. This session is designed to complement hands on training.

Patient Centred Care

This session describes the factors involved in delivering high-quality, patient centred care and effective communication in endoscopy.

Risk Assessment for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

This session will provide the necessary knowledge with which to undertake an effective patient pre-assessment to minimise both patient and procedural risk.

Complications of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

This session explores complications related to patient factors, the pathology encountered and particular procedure-related risks of endoscopy. It describes their incidence, how to minimize risk, and the management of early and late complications.


Further resources are currently being finalised and will be released shortly.


A number of different groups have free access to the resources, this include anyone working within the NHS or on NHS patients.
