Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is growing on a worldwide scale and requires a high level of care to manage the substantial burden that is placed on patients. Despite improvement in treatment options, many patients do not achieve remission. Patients receiving comprehensive, team-based care have the best potential for successful treatment. With the growing number of IBD patients, gastroenterology teams that include nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), dieticians/nutritionists, behavioral health professions, in addition to gastroenterologists, will be essential to provide care for the escalating patient population. All members of the GI team that encounter patients with IBD must be well informed regarding the best treatment strategies and newest treatment options that are available to patients.Utilizing a faculty panel composed of a multidisciplinary, interprofessional, comphrehensive IBD care-team and featuring video vignettes of actual patients, the objective of this activity is to provide clinicians with the latest data regarding evolving treatment goals in IBD, adoption of an individualized treatment approach to the selection, initiation, and tailoring of biologic therapies for achieving and sustaining remission of IBD.This program includes discussion of multiple therapies for the treatment of patients with IBD. All content has been independently developed by national experts under the direction of Boston University School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education.
Upon completion of these activities, participants should be better able to:Determine potential causes of treatment failure for patients who are unable to achieve remissionDescribe how to modify treatment for patients who are unable to achieve remissionExplain the relationship of current treatment strategies to the underlying mechanisms of disease progression in IBDDiscuss the safety and efficacy data for new and emerging therapeutic options for IBD, including unique mechanisms of action and potential place in therapyIdentify the educational needs of essential members of the IBD care teamAssess nutritional status and address malnutrition in the patient with IBDAssess depression and anxiety in the patient with IBD
