 Treatment Patterns in Family Medicine:
The Role of the Primary Care Clinician in Patient-Centered Management of IBD

A CME/CE-certified Series

A 3-Part Series

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be challenging to diagnose because of its heterogeneous and somewhat ambiguous clinical presentation. Despite the challenges, primary care clinicians are on the front line for assessment and initial diagnosis of these patients. Once diagnosed, even if placed under the care of a gastroenterologist, patients with IBD will require life-long care. These activities address diagnosis and initial treatment options for IBD, as well as monitoring for treatment response, extraintestinal manifestations, and adverse events. They will also examine collaboration between primary care clinicians and specialists

Target audience:
These activities were developed for family medicine and primary care physicians, PAs, and nurse practitioners.
