Welcome to the training website for the reprocessing of flexible endoscopes and accessories.
The content was developed collaboratively by the Gastroenterological Nurses College of Australia Inc. (GENCA) and Queensland Health's Centre for Healthcare Related Infection Surveillance and Prevention (CHRISP).
The aim of this web-based package is to provide healthcare professionals with education and training tools to minimize adverse patient outcomes associated with breaches in the reprocessing of flexible endoscopes and accessories. The training package reflects the national standard of practice within Gastroenterology, which GENCA as the professional body has endorsed.
The package consists of six modules for you to work through. Each module has review questions at the end to assist with your learning. Once you have finished all six modules, consolidate your knowledge by working through the final review.
An assessment of the learning obtained from this training package may be undertaken by demonstration of your practical skills. The Gastroenterological Nurses College of Australia Inc. has a program for this assessment and information may be obtained from the GENCA website.
