Endoscopy procedures are an integral part in cancer screening programs as well as detection and therapeutic interventions for a number of gastrointestinal conditions. Technological developments have significantly expanded in the last 30 years. In this context Endoscopy nurses are responsible not only for individualised, comprehensive and complex patient care, but also advanced technical skills during endoscopic interventions, which require close monitoring of patients to ensure safety. Infection prevention and control is vital throughout the patient journey and this also includes the decontamination processes of endoscopes and accessories. Staff involved in patient care and decontamination processes need training and knowledge to prevent patient and self-contamination.  In addition, advanced endoscopy nursing skills have been established for the treatment of various gastrointestinal diseases. These complex tasks require specialised knowledge and training to ensure patient safety and positive outcomes in patient care.

Since its foundation in 1996, ESGENA has been establishing a close co-operation with ESGE and has co-authored various guidelines, statements and curricula on hygiene, sedation, quality assurance and endoscopy techniques. ESGENA also developed a close co-operation with ESNO. Consequently, this textbook is published within ESNO series.
