About the Authors
  • This easy to read, easy to use pocket guide has been written with the busy health care provider in mind. Patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis - collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - present special challenges for practitioners, whether in the office, in the clinic, or on the telephone. IBD patients typically require lifetime care, and grapple with a wide range of changing intestinal symptoms and extraintestinal concerns that can be confusing for the nonspecialist who may not know what to ask or what to do next. This guide has been written by respected clinicians in the field of IBD to help anyone who cares for these patients identify the problems and make decisions about treatment. Each chapter is devoted to a particular symptom and follows the same format for rapid access. The book also contains a comprehensive table of IBD medications, and chapters on other management issues like long term complications, nutrition, and alternative therapies.

    • Easy to use format
    • Written for health care professionals at all levels of training
    • Editors and contributors are well known clinicians and researchers in IBD
