Course Descriptions

OOOPS! Is That Scope Really Dry and Why Does it Matter?

Evidence based research supports complete drying of endoscopes before use on the next patient and especially for storage of the reprocessed endoscope. This one-hour learner-paced continuing education activity will provide information regarding the critical importance of thorough drying of flexible endoscopes after high level disinfection. The program will identify steps that can be missed even with meticulous adherence to instructions for use from the manufacturer. It is expected that participants will be able to identify and correct endoscope drying errors in their own GI Suite. Participants who complete the printed module will be authorized access to the online certification process. Upon completion of that process, they will be awarded 1 contact hour and will be able to print out the certificate of completion.

Traceability in Flexible Endoscope Reprocessing

This activity will present information on requirements for traceability during gastrointestinal flexible endoscope cleaning, reprocessing, and storage. This one-hour, learner-paced CNE activity will discuss the concept of traceability in the GI Suite, review SGNA documentation guidelines and discuss traceability options. The participant will gain an understanding of the multiple steps required for traceability; recognizing where human error can occur in flexible endoscope reprocessing and identifying the technologies that can improve patient safety through effective traceability. This activity is intended primarily for RNs with an interest in endoscope reprocessing and ensuring patient safety in GI Endoscopy. It will also be of interest to allied healthcare personnel and MDs involved in endoscopy. Participants who complete the printed module will be authorized access to the online certification process. Upon completion of that process, they will be awarded 1 contact hour and will be able to print out the certificate of completion.

Endoscopic Marking: Driving the Standard of Care

Endoscopic marking (tattooing) of colonic lesions was first described in 1975. It is used to assist in operative localization and to facilitate identification of subtle mucosal lesions or endoscopic resection sites at the time of subsequent endoscopy. This learner-paced continuing education activity will provide information on tattooing and the various agents used. It is expected that participants will distinguish characteristics of various marking agents and review procedural considerations, in order to provide a safe patient experience. The continuing education activity is intended for registered nurses (RNs) with a responsibility for or an interest in the application of endoscopic marking/tattoo. Participants who complete the printed module will be authorized access to the online certification process. Upon completion of that process, they will be awarded 1 contact hour and will be able to print out the certificate of completion.
