Managing acute flares of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the ED can be challenging. This issue will help you:

  • Differentiate the routine flare from a complication
  • Learn the extraintestinal manifestations of undiagnosed IBD to help spot the disease early
  • Determine whether the signs and symptoms indicate an infectious etiology
  • Order laboratory testing and imaging that will be most effective and helpful
  • Identify surgical emergencies
  • Communicate effectively with gastroenterologists and assist in long-term management
  • Offer patients information and resources that will help them cope with long-term implications of the disease
