Endoscope Reprocessing Specialist Training (ERST)

It is important for healthcare personnel performing endoscopy procedures and those overseeing or performing reprocessing of flexible endoscopes, to have a thorough understanding of the steps required to ensure the endoscope is safe and patient-ready. This course will provide participants with an overview of the procedure and recommendations for reprocessing Olympus flexible endoscopes. It will also provide information on the proper handling of these endoscopes to minimise damage and reduce repairs. Participants will learn to recognise the important processes required for pre-cleaning, leak testing, manual cleaning, high level disinfection, sterilisation and storage. An overview of flexible endoscope mechanics and nomenclature of endoscopes will also be discussed. Reprocessing demonstration will be provided for commonly used Olympus flexible endoscopes and accessories.

Attendees may claim up to 5 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Endoscope Reprocessing Train the Trainer (TTT) Course

The Endoscope Reprocessing Train the Trainer (TTT) Course is the first comprehensive training course of its kind offered in Australia and New Zealand. The complexity of reprocessing flexible and rigid endoscopes demand a standardised approach that is consistent procedure after procedure. The three-day TTT Course is designed to provide participants with information, competency tools and hands-on training. This enables them to have the resources, knowledge and skills required to establish training programs within their hospital or region.

Target Audience
This course is intended for health care professionals who are involved in delivering training for hospital staff.

Prerequisite
Participants must have completed the Endoscope Reprocessing Specailist Training (ERST) within the past 12 months, to be eligible to attend this course.

Attendees may claim up to 7 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for day one course

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) Course 

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) has emerged as an increasingly important imaging modality in respiratory and interventional medicine for both diagnostic and ultrasound-guided therapeutic procedures. This program is designed to provide nurses with a thorough update and understanding of the most recent advances in endosonographic technology and equipment; including a step-by-step guide to assisting and preparing for EBUS procedures. Hands-on demonstration will be provided through work stations utilising Olympus ultrasound processors, echoendoscopes, miniprobes and needles used in TBNA procedures.

Attendees may claim up to 4 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) Course 

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) has emerged as an increasingly important imaging modality in gastroenterology and interventional medicine for both diagnostic and ultrasound-guided therapeutic procedures. This program is designed to provide a thorough update and understanding of the most recent advances in endosonographic technology and equipment, as well as a step-by-step guide to assisting and preparing for EUS procedures. Hands-on demonstration will be provided through a number of stations utilising Olympus ultrasound processors, echoendoscopes and needles used in FNA procedures.

Attendees may claim up to 4 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 

Endoscope & Endobronchial Ultrasound (EUS/EBUS) Course

Endoscopic and EndoBronchial Ultrasound (EUS/EBUS) have emerged as important new imaging modalities in gastroenterology and pulmonology. This program is designed to provide nurses with a thorough update of the most recent advances in endosonographic technology and equipment, as well as a step-by-step guide to assisting and preparing for the procedure. Hands-on demonstration will be provided through a number of stations utilising Olympus ultrasound processors, echoendoscopes, miniprobes, guide sheath kit, and needles used in FNA procedure.  

Attendees may claim up to 5 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)   

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

ERCP can be a technically challenging diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. Many nurses are not regularly involved with ERCP procedures, which can make gaining and maintaining proficiency challenging. It is important for nurses to have a good knowledge and understanding of the procedure and how the instruments are used. This course will focus on the relevant pancreaticobiliary anatomy and physiology, indications for ERCP, devices used for the procedure, the nurse’s role and the teamwork necessary for successful performance of ERCP.

Attendees may claim up to 4 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
