AGA Offers Free Patient Education Tools on IBD

Feb. 22, 2017

As an AGA member, you have access to AGA's informative multimedia tools to help your patients suffering from IBD.

As you know, IBD affects as many as 1 to 1.3 million Americans. The peak age for onset of the disease is 13 to 30 years, and the cause of IBD is unknown, making prevention or a cure not yet possible.

AGA wants to make sure that all our members have access to the latest diagnostic, treatment and management materials for those patients who have IBD. AGA has designed materials to help you manage patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and integrate patient education into your practice, including multimedia publications that are accessible and informative. They feature videos, printable tools, audio voice-over for literacy-challenged viewers, and quizzes for checking what’s been learned. Best of all, the guide is free for members and their patients to access.
