A Non-irritable Review of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Guidelines

A Non-irritable Review of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Guidelines

The AGA has issued new clinical guidelines that outline when to use new irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) medications, when to rely on old drugs, and when to use over-the-counter medications to treat patients with IBS-C (constipation) or IBS-D (diarrhea). In this course, Dr. Zumach discusses the guidelines and helps you provide personalized drug therapy recommendations for your patients.

1. Review epidemiology, pathophysiology, symptoms, and diagnoses of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with diarrhea (IBS-D) and constipation (IBS-C)
2. Describe key features of the American Gastroenterological Association’s (AGA) clinical updates for management of IBS-D and IBS-C and chronic gastrointestinal pain in disorders of gut-brain interaction
3. Determine realistic goals of therapy in a patient with IBS
4. Develop pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapy recommendations for a patient with IBS based on practice guidelines and applicable primary literature
