This initiative will target community gastroenterology practices and reach more than 570 gastroenterology APPs involved in the management of IBD.
The goal of The Art of Prevention: An Update on Health Maintenance in IBD is to deliver focused, educational updates to Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) that will highlight current vaccination and other health maintenance guidelines for patients with IBD.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Summarize clinical practice guidelines for health maintenance strategies in IBD patients
Incorporate current health maintenance recommendations, including immunizations, effectively into clinical practice
Discuss the unique health maintenance needs of certain IBD populations, including pediatric/adolescent patients, elderly patients, and minority and/or underserved patients
