Why We Should Utilise Nurse Endoscopists?

Austin Health is the pioneering health orgainisation for Advanced Practice Nurse Endoscopy in Victoria.
The Necessity of Advanced Practice Nurse Endoscopists

The introduction of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program allowed for greater community access to healthcare.  

The introduction of Advanced Practice Nurse Endoscopy enables highly trained medical staff to manage and treat more patients, by delegating appropriate cases to highly trained and qualified advanced practice nurses. This in turn allows better access to gastroenterologists and/or colorectal surgeons for complex and advanced endoscopic cases.
