Colorectal cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Ireland with the highest incidence occurring in the 55-74yr age group. The National Cancer Screening Service (NCSS 2010) recommend the phased implementation of a population based colorectal cancer screening programme to ensure early detection and treatment of colorectal cancer. Nurses are often the first point of contact for patients and account for a very significant proportion of the healthcare workforce therefore have the potential to be instrumental in the implementation of a colorectal cancer-screening programme. This module aims to provide registered nurses with the knowledge, skills and competence to care for the patient undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy and enable them to increase their impact on improving the health and well being of the greater population.
As part of this module students must successfully undertake a clinical assessment and keep a reflective journal.
