A Course with a Vision & Mission to Educate

Therapeutic Endoscopy Course for Endoscopy Nurse Assistants & Nurse Consultants

Endoscopy has advanced over the last few decades. There have been numerous developments in endoscopic accessories enabling complex therapeutic procedures. Traditionally teaching involving endoscopic accessories in therapeutic endoscopy has been informal, with limited explanation of core basic principles and in addition, the limited hands on experience outside the endoscopy suite in a relaxed setting. This course provides a review of relevant practical aspects of therapeutic endoscopy, includes several practical demonstrations/exhibition and followed by "Hands-on Experience" with endoscopy accessories at several work stations. All delegates attending the course will be provided with a "SCOPE ENDOSCOPY MANUAL" dedicated for all those working in the endoscopy unit.

This course mainly covers the therapeutic/technical aspects of endoscopy and does not include patient care, related professional & ethical issues as these topics are covered by other national/regional courses. The TECNA COURSE to date has trained more than 1500 nurses working in various endoscopy units in the NHS (National Health Service ) and independent /private hospitals. Over the years delegates have attended from the UK and various other countries which include Ireland, Hongkong, Croatia, Portugal, Oman, Malta, Scandinavia, Israel, Saudi Arabia & UAE.
