Abstract: Training of future endoscopists within the UK has shown to be of variable quality. Those learning endoscopy have the opportunity to attend short courses but much of their training occurs within base hospitals around the UK; this training tends to occur via an apprenticeship style model on a one-to-one basis with an experienced endoscopist, the ‘trainer’. These trainers have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to attend ‘Training the trainer’ courses but then receive no ongoing validated feedback about their training. Evidence suggests that gaining feedback on teaching performance can improve subsequent performance; therefore this project aimed to create a validated feedback tool which could be completed by trainees, peers or trainers as a self-reflection exercise. This tool can then be used to give formative feedback to endoscopy trainers.
