Please Note: Continuing education credit is only available to those attending the session live. CE credit is not available when accessing the program on demand.
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. This disease affects more than half a million people in the United States. Crohn’s disease treatment is divided into two phases: induction and maintenance. Treatment is multifaceted where a combination of treatment options is often required for relief. The presenter will focus on pharmacologic treatment options for induction therapy of Crohn’s disease including investigational medications. As treatment of Crohn’s disease is dependent on the severity of the illness, stages of the disease and subsequent paths of treatment will also be defined. Treatment goals will be provided as well as guideline recommendations to therapy for the induction phase of Crohn’s disease.
Learning Objectives for Pharmacists & Nurses | At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Identify clinical goals of induction therapy for Crohn’s disease
- Recognize pharmacologic treatment options for induction therapy of Crohn’s disease
- Recall current guideline recommendations to induction therapy
