Course Summary

Health clinicians need to be able to differentiate between Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease, as well as be able to describe the clinical manifestations and potential effects of each on the gastrointestinal tract. Understanding the common causes and symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, including the role that genetics may play and complications of the disease is essential for a clear understanding of the four types of medical and surgical techniques commonly used during treatment. Clinicians supporting nutritional therapies and other health or group support resources for patients and family members can be used during the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. The purpose of this course is to provide health clinicians with knowledge of the potential causes of inflammatory bowel disease to improve the chances that this illness can be successfully treated or prevented.
