Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a lifelong systemic autoimmune disease that often strikes patients at a young age and must be managed across a lifetime. IBD is best managed using a multidisciplinary approach in which primary care clinicians play the important role of helping patients to achieve good outcomes through preventive care, management of treatment and treatment-related side effects, and identification of extraintestinal symptoms. This 1-credit, case-based CE/CME activity for nurse practitioners and physician assistants addresses diagnosis, assessment of disease severity, treatment options, and evidence-based quality measures that improve outcomes for patients with IBD.
