Studies have shown that patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are less likely than patients without IBD to receive needed preventive health maintenance. Effective preventive measures are critical in reducing morbidity, hospitalization, and surgery as well as improving disease-free remission and quality of life in patients with IBD. It is key for clinicians working in both primary care and gastroenterology settings to understand the preventive health maintenance needs of their patients with IBD. Clinicians should tailor their approach based on patient age as preventive health guidelines and vaccination guidelines are age specific. As 25% of patients with IBD are diagnosed before age 20, it is critical that providers be aware of screening recommendations specific to the pediatric patient population.
After completion of this Adaptive Learning OnDemand activity developed by Dr. Anita Afzali, learners will be able to manage and maintain patient vaccinations, perform appropriate and regular screenings for cancer and depression/anxiety, and effectively provide age-specific preventive care for patients with IBD by using current guidelines and a team-based approach.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Integrate recommended vaccinations into gastroenterology clinical practice to improve health outcomes for patients with IBD, especially older adults.
- Develop a health screening plan for patients with IBD, including cancer, bone health, and depression/anxiety screenings.
- Implement a team-based approach to preventive care management for pediatric patients with IBD.
