Advanced practice nurses (APNs) and nurses are integral and growing parts of the care and management of IBD for patients. The care they provide includes advanced assessment, diagnosis, treatment/care planning, implementation, evaluation, and patient education. A study on the effectiveness of specialized nursing care in the management of IBD found a reduction in patients’ hospital visits and length of stay, and increased rates of remission. Patient satisfaction improved in key areas, including access to information on IBD and advice on avoidance of illness and maintaining health.
This program will be an invaluable learning experience for nurses seeking basic or advanced IBD knowledge. Formal education in IBD nursing is minimal and lags behind clinical practice. The emergence of the IBD nurse specialist role is expanding in the areas of gastroenterology, colorectal surgery, and hospital inpatient and outpatient clinic areas. APNs, nurses, and physician assistants as providers improve patient access to care and play key roles in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management of IBD patients. This program will provide an opportunity for nurses to elicit opinions from IBD experts to gain advanced knowledge, get answers to challenging patient care questions and observe how evidenced-based practice and research are implemented into the daily care of patients.
This activity will educate and provide healthcare professionals with a learning experience focused on the latest information from IBD diagnosis, treatments, research, and management that will result in improved patient outcomes.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Describe the pathogenesis and epidemiology of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis;
• Explain the clinical features of inflammatory bowel disease;
• Compare the medical management strategies and surgical options for Crohn’s disease states and ulcerative colitis disease states;
• Discuss the patient-caregiver relationship and how to plan for ways to approach challenges encountered in its development;
• Identify different management concerns such as pregnancy, cancer risk, and psychosocial impact and give examples of how to respond to these concerns the practice of patient care.
