Online Education Modules

Virtual IBD Clinic Program

The Foundation's Virtual IBD Clinic program seeks to enhance clinician training in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of IBD through highly interactive cased-based modules, presented by thought leaders, that replicate the real-world experiences of a clinician. Modules incorporate audio and slide presentations as well as challenge questions.

Topics cover:

  • Diagnosis and medical treatment CME
  • Disease management and surgery CME
  • Anemia
  • Malnutrition

Biosimilars

As biosimilars enter the U.S. market, educational resources for professional and patients are needed to ensure accurate and unbiased information about biosimilars. The Foundation has developed a resource page designed to educate medical professionals about biosimilars, including:

  • The FDA approval process
  • Interchangeability
  • Consideration in the use of biosimilars
  • Perspectives from our European colleagues
  • Importance of provider and patient choice in choosing the right medication including biosimilars

Nutrition

Malnutrition is common in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). The goals of nutrition therapy are to maintain or restore nutritional balance, a key principle in the overall management of IBD for many patients. Every effort must be made by healthcare professionals to consider diet and nutrition as an important part of patient’s IBD management, and provide individualized care based on patient need. The resources provided here are designed to educate medical professionals about nutrition and IBD based on evidenced-based research.
