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.

A number of different groups have free access to the resources, this include anyone working within the NHS or on NHS patients. Further resources are currently being finalised and will be released shortly.

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.

 Safe Sedation for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy This session gives guidance on the use of safe sedation in endoscopy. It describes the pharmacology of the agents commonly used for pain relief and sedation and highlights the risks associated with the use of these agents. It explores the themes of safe sedation with case scenarios based upon clinical practice.
 Safe Diathermy for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy A review of the basic principles of diathermy and their application to clinical practice 
 The Videoendoscope and Endoscopic Image This session aims to explain the basic components of the videoendoscope, how they work, fit into a unified scope design and affect the handling characteristics. 
 Enhanced Detection of Gastrointestinal Pathology This module will discuss how to Enhance Detection and Accurately Risk Assess Pathology in the Lower GI Tract.
 Endoscopic Examination of the Lower Gastrointestinal Tract This session will cover the visual recognition of the endoscopic lesions affecting the rectum and colon. It will list these rectal and colonic lesions and describe their endoscopic appearances. The session will explore the endoscopic classification of the diseases of the rectum and colon and practice the allocation of lesion to classification.
