Utilizing an expert multidisciplinary faculty team and featuring video vignettes of ideal patient education encounters, this activity is designed to address several key issues. These issues include, but are not limited to: patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) do not receive the necessary vaccines, putting them at increased risk for preventable disease; clinicians managing IBD patients are not aware of vaccine guidelines for patients with IBD; and clinicians managing IBD need information on developing strategies to increase vaccination rates in patients. This program will address knowledge, competence, and practice gaps among clinician members of the IBD care team by reviewing the importance of vaccination in the IBD patient, increasing understanding of the current vaccination guidelines, and raising awareness of the risk of infection in this patient population. By utilizing evidence-based tools and practical patient cases, providers will gain a clearer understanding of the deficits in vaccination and the harm that can come to patients because of low vaccination rates.
Upon completion of these activities, participants should be better able to:Discuss the increased risk of infection in patients with IBD and the rates of patients who are not being appropriately vaccinatedExamine the most recent vaccination and screening guideline recommendations for patients with IBDDescribe strategies to identify patients with IBD who should receive vaccines and increase the vaccine rates in this population using multiple members of the healthcare team (e.g., physicians, NP/PAs, nurses, and pharmacists)
