This Lynch syndrome online training for pathologists was created by Dr Nicholas West, Associate Professor of Pathology and Honorary Consultant in Gastrointestinal Pathology, University of Leeds. It covers the modules required for pathologists.

Please note that the training videos cover both the colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer pathways. For this reason, it is recommended that you take your cancer pathway specific modules and tests only.

The training involves watching two short videos which cover all the different stages of the Lynch syndrome pathway, and then completing the two related online questionnaires to ensure that you have understood correctly the processes and procedures for testing. In addition, at the end of the page you will find a range of supporting documents to help understand this pathway.

Colorectal cancer: Modules 1 & 3

Endometrial cancer: Modules 2 & 3

Module tests

Once you have completed the questionnaires, please email Laura Monje-Garcia, Nurse Practitioner, The St Mark’s Centre for Familial Intestinal Cancer, at LNWH-tr.SMCFIC@nhs.net if you have any questions or comments. She will review your answers and send you the CPD training certificate if you have passed.

If you would like to find out more about Lynch syndrome or the genetic counselling process, we recommend you continue with the online training for the colorectal or endometrial MDTs Option 1.
