The AGA GI Patient Center has released a new resource for patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) on how to safely seek care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With patients feeling more nervous, irritable and uncomfortable than normal, GI symptoms may be increasing. At the same time, patients are putting off seeing their doctor during the pandemic. That’s why we’ve created this new resource that you can share directly with your IBS patients to help alleviate their concerns and prepare them for their visit. The article includes advice on:
- Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
- Seeking health care during COVID-19.
- Visiting your health care provider’s office.
Share this new resource with your patients by printing, linking from your practice website or emailing the link to your patients.
