Chronic inflammation of the digestive tract from maladies such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis can have serious and life-threatening consequences, so advanced practice providers (APPs) must have well-honed diagnostic and therapeutic skills when treating inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).

To be held Aug. 9-11, 2019, in Chicago, Principles of GI is the medical industry’s premiere course for APPs, taught by clinical leaders from the AGA and leading APPs and designed to take nurse practitioners and physician assistants to the next level of their growth as GI care practitioners. Save $150 if you register during the next five days. The IBD session on Aug. 11 will cover:

    • How to manage Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
    • Best practices in colorectal cancer screening and surveillance.
    • Surgical considerations in IBD and anorectal disorders.
