With an extensive selection of educational programs, Olympus Academy is a convenient way for nurses, technicians, biomedical engineers, administrators and materials managers to further their knowledge of gastrointestinal and surgical instrument procedures. Specific topics include infection control, reducing the risk of cross contamination, care and maintenance of flexible and rigid scopes and minimising adverse events related to the reprocessing of flexible endoscopes and surgical instruments.

Endoscope Reprocessing Specialist Course

It is important for healthcare personnel performing endoscopy procedures and those overseeing or performing reprocessing of 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 gastrointestinal endoscopes and bronchoscopes. 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 endoscope mechanics and nomenclature of endoscopes will also be discussed. Reprocessing demonstration will be provided for commonly used Olympus medical endoscopes and accessories.

CSSD Reprocessing Specialist Course

It is important for healthcare personnel overseeing or performing reprocessing of instruments to have a thorough understanding of the steps required to ensure the instrument is safe and patient ready. This course will provide participants with an overview of the procedure and recommendations for reprocessing Olympus flexible (cystoscopes, ureteroscopes, hysteroscopes and laparoscopic telescopes), rigid (telescopes, camera heads and light leads) and semi rigid (flexible laproscopic telescopes) endoscopes. It will also provide information on the proper care and handling of these instruments 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 endoscope mechanics and nomenclature of instruments will also be discussed. Reprocessing demonstration will be provided for commonly used Olympus medical instruments and accessories.

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) has emerged as an important new imaging modality in thoracic and pulmonary medicine and is considered the ‘gold standard’ in Lung Cancer staging. This program is designed to provide nurses with a thorough understanding of bronchoscopy procedures and an update of the most recent advances in endosonographic technology and equipment. A step-by-step guide to assisting and preparing for both Linear and Radial EBUS procedures will also be discussed. Hands-on demonstration will be provided through a number of stations utilising Olympus ultrasound processors, bronchoscopes, echoendoscopes, miniprobes, guide sheath kit, and needles used in FNA procedures.

Nurses may claim 4 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points 

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.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (ERCP)

ERCP can be a technically challenging diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. Nurses are not regularly
involved with ERCP procedures, which can make gaining and maintaining proficiency. It is important for the nurse 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.
