This session covers the different forms of IBD, their risk factors, how to investigate patients with suspected IBD and appropriate referral. It covers the management of flares, monitoring disease modifying drugs and the precautions that patients need to take when on biological therapy. It will also discuss the wider effects that IBD can have on a patient’s life and the holistic support that GPs can offer.
