Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Gastroenterology Volume 27, Issue 10: Diarrhea/Diverticulitis.

The goal of this program is to improve the care of patients with diarrhea and diverticular disease. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Review the mechanisms of diarrheal illness.
2. Determine the etiology of a patient’s acute diarrhea.
3. Summarize the American Gastroenterological Association classification of chronic diarrhea.
4. Characterize a patient’s diverticulitis based on clinical features.
5. Formulate a treatment strategy for patients with acute diverticulitis.

The original programs were presented by Jean-Paul Achkar, MD, Kenneth Rainin Endowed Chair for IBD Research, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, and Karen Deveney, MD, Professor of Surgery, Program Director in Surgery, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland.
