In collaboration with the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL), AGA recently launched a training and education initiative to close the gap in the multidisciplinary management of short-bowel syndrome (SBS) through educator development and peer-to-peer learning.

Whether you’re an individual seeking CME, a clinician looking to become an AGA-recognized educator in the field, or a clinic/hospital seeking one of our educators to present to your team, this robust program has something for you.

The treatment of SBS is exceptionally complex, requiring expertise across multiple clinical specialties to optimize patient care. Clinicians in these specialties may be unaware of dietary and pharmacologic interventions, strategies for enhancing intestinal adaptation, and expert recommendations for managing the diverse patients affected by this rare condition.

Improve your knowledge of management strategies for pediatric and adult patients with SBS and be a part of a program customized to meet the needs of your team and the diverse patients you treat.
