Clinical Endoscopists require extensive clinical and technical expertise combined with advanced academic knowledge and skills to ensure that endoscopy procedures are undertaken appropriately and safely, underpinned by evidence-based, patient-centred clinical decision-making.
This module aims to build in-depth clinical knowledge and technical skills in clinical endoscopy. You will evaluate and reflect on your own professional responsibilities within the context of holistic practice to service the needs of patients undergoing diagnostic procedures throughout the patient pathway and develop critical thinking, communication, problem-solving and decision-making skills, appropriate and directly applied to clinical endoscopist practice.
The employing organisation is expected to support students' endoscopic practice with two dedicated endoscopy training lists, a JAG accredited trainer and mentorship from a senior nursing colleague.
This module advances your professional development by drawing on the four pillars of advanced practice:
- management and leadership,
- research and
- advanced clinical practice.
It reinforces the core principle that advanced practice is a level of practice rather than a particular role.
