Access our Members-Only Patient Brochure on IBS

Jan. 10, 2017

AGA is offering members free, printed easy-to-read patient education brochures on IBS.

Through a grant from Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, AGA is now offering members free, printed patient education brochures on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Now your IBS patients can learn about their condition and treatment using a visually appealing and easy-to-read printed brochure. The printed brochure, IBS: A Guide to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, offers facts about the condition and how it's identified, as well as encouragement to patients for them to speak up early, completely and often about their symptoms.

The brochure includes information on topics such as possible causes; symptoms; preparing for the doctor’s visit; treatment; things to be aware of with IBS; and questions for your doctor.

To order your free printed IBS patient brochures, please be sure to log in to gastro.org and then go here. The printed brochures come in packs of 24. Each member is limited to four packs for a total of 100 free printed brochures. Shipping charges apply.
