CONTINUING EDUCATION INFORMATION
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses and physician assistants involved in the care of patients
with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
STATEMENT OF NEED
Nurses and physician assistants play a vital role in the care and management of IBD for patients. Given the rise of IBD cases, the

advances in therapies and management strategies to improve patient care.
After completing this activity, participants should be able to:
Describe current research involving genetics and causation for IBD

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
