Inflammatory Bowel Disease
4th June 6.30pm (for 7pm) till 9pm
Apollo Hotel Charlestown
Inflammatory bowel disease affects tens of thousands of Australians each year and this number continues to rise. Of the various types of IBD, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the most common. In 2018, the Gastroenterological Society of Australia updated the Australian guidelines on the treatment and management of IBD, which includes a range of treatment options, including biologics available through community pharmacy.
This workshop will guide pharmacists through the acute and ongoing management of IBD, and discuss how pharmacists can help patients better manage and cope with these life-long conditions.
