Help Your Nurses Enhance Their Knowledge of Common GI Disorders

Jan. 8, 2015

This free program from the AGA Institute and Takeda Pharmaceuticals provides nurses and medical assistants with valuable information on the epidemiology of common GI disorders.

The AGA Nurse GI Educator Program is designed to help nurses and medical assistants enhance their knowledge of the epidemiology, symptoms and diagnoses of chronic constipation, GERD and IBS.

Tips on effective communication with patients to help establish goals and develop a follow-up plan are also provided.

The program consists of three 20-minute webcasts with PowerPoint slides containing charts, graphics, tables and accompanying audio. Once a module has been completed, participants can re-view modules to enhance retention and understanding of content.

Participants who complete one module are eligible to receive one medically relevant educational item (MREI). Participants who complete all three modules will receive a certificate of completion and are eligible to claim an additional MREI.*

This program is brought to you by Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. and the AGA Institute.

*Eligibility for MREIs is determined by the state in which you practice. Participants in certain states may not be eligible to receive MREIs through this program. However, you may still participate in the program and gain access to all materials.
