Make sure you are up-to-date on the latest advances in therapies and management strategies to improve patient care for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses involved in the care of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). 

Nurses play a vital role in the care and management of IBD for patients. Given the rise of IBD cases, the chronic nature of the disease and new therapies being developed at a rapid pace, it is vital that nurses at all levels and in all areas of practice have the knowledge and skill set to manage patients with IBD.

After completing this activity, participants should be able to: 
Describe current research involving genetics and causation for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD)  
Utilize current and emerging therapies to maximize IBD patient outcomes by using the most appropriate treatments   
Identify the differences between "top-down" and "bottom-up" approaches to treatment  
Implement strategies to improve adherence to IBD treatment regimens
Assist patients to make better lifestyle choices by helping them identify lifestyle factors affecting their IBD disease course   
Provide appropriate care and counsel for patients and their families
