Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Internal Medicine Volume 61, Issue 02: Gastroenterology Update.
The goal of this program is to improve the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the use of endoscopic procedures in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Barrett esophagus, and in screening for colorectal cancer. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Advise patients on lifestyle and dietary interventions to improve symptoms of IBS.
2. Consider alosetron for the management of select patients with severe diarrhea-predominant IBS.
3. Use lubiprostone and linaclotide in the treatment of patients with constipation-predominant IBS.
4. Select the appropriate patients with GERD to screen with esophagogastroduodenoscopy for Barrett esophagus.
5. Assess the quality of colonoscopies performed by local endoscopists and colonoscopy specialists.
The original programs were presented by William D. Chey, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor. Anthony J. DiMarino Jr, MD, William Rorer Professor of Medicine; Chief, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA.
