In this online CME self-learning program:
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a broad term that includes many different forms of inflammatory bowel conditions, the most common of which are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, the former of which affects any area of the alimentary canal. There are up to about fifteen new Crohn’s disease cases per 100,000 people per year, with the vast majority occurring in the North American continent, the United Kingdom (UK), and northern Europe.
Given the data from multiple studies that physicians are either not aware of updated practice guidelines or are not utilizing them and that this lack of knowledge is affecting patient satisfaction, CME programs are warranted to keep HCPs abreast of best practices. There have been many advances on both diagnostic and treatment sides, as well as a wide array of advances in care in pharmacotherapeutic options, including approved therapies as well as potential ones on the horizon, meriting CME.
Healthcare professionals specializing in: gastroenterology, internal medicine, or those who otherwise commonly care for patients with Crohn’s disease.
