DIAGNOSING AND MANAGING IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME IN FAMILY PRACTICE: THE LATEST NEWS AND PATIENT VIEWS

The personalized care and therapeutic relationship required for optimal IBS management resides firmly within the purview of family practitioners (FPs), who are known for their care and concern for the whole patient. This program was designed to increase FP awareness of updated diagnostic criteria, new diagnostic tools, and new treatment paradigms through the use of case-based scenarios, and to translate specialist-focused recommendations into family practice, fostering better care of patients with IBS, who often feel frustrated and unheard during clinical encounters.
