Updated Management of Ulcerative Colitis: A Longitudinal Program for Gastroenterology Trainees (A 12-Week Virtual Series)

Aug 18–Sep 24, 2020 Medicine

Updated Management of Ulcerative Colitis: A Longitudinal Program for Gastroenterology Trainees (A 12-Week Virtual Series)

Description

Among its other wide-reaching impacts, the Coronavirus pandemic has also interfered with the ongoing care of IBD patients. Closures of outpatient clinics and, consequently, lack of access to treatment have been key factors, but circumstances such as job loss have also contributed to ever sicker IBD patients, particularly those with ulcerative colitis (UC).

This 12-week, virtual longitudinal curriculum on the management of ulcerative colitis (UC) is designed with the needs of gastroenterology trainees in mind. Through a total of 24 one-hour sessions, the program will promote a better understanding of UC management for trainees and address a continuum of care from the mild to severe patient, including care for special populations. In addition, the course will specifically discuss the appropriate implementation of telehealth and the delivery of outpatient care to prevent complications of disease. By completing this comprehensive and applicable curriculum on UC, trainees will gain critical knowledge that they can immediately implement into their practice.

Each week, program content will be offered in two parts:

• Part 1: Didactic lecture - Tuesdays at 8pm EST
- Each lecture will address a particular aspect of UC management. Faculty will answer moderated questions from trainees.

• Part 2: ECHO® (Extension in Community Healthcare Outcomes) - Thursdays at 8pm EST
- Each ECHO® will consisting of virtual case-based discussions with faculty. This format will solidify and expand upon the didactic session’s content, while building a community of practice among physicians.

Participants may select any or all of the sessions to attend, but are encouraged to attend both sessions each individual week (i.e., the didactic lecture and the subsequent ECHO® session). Educational credit certificates will be provided to participants per each session they attend.

This program is principally offered by the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which houses an internationally-renowned inflammatory bowel disease center, and includes faculty members who are authors of three recent guidelines on inflammatory bowel disease. The course directors are: Dr. Millie Long – a current gastroenterology and hepatology program director – and Dr. Hans Herfarth – who also co-directs UNC’s Multidisciplinary IBD center. In addition, this program will feature nationally recognized experts from IBD centers around the United States who will deliver content in their areas of expertise.

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • State the epidemiology of ulcerative colitis and demonstrate how to provide accurate diagnosis, including an individualized assessment of disease severity (rather than disease activity)
  • Explain and apply the management of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis, including available therapeutics (medical as well as complementary)
  • Explain and apply the management of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, including identifying available medical therapeutics, specifically biologics (including biosimilars) and small molecules (JAK inhibitors)
  • Improve the management of the hospitalized, severe ulcerative colitis patient, including the role of colectomy
  • Review and implement the latest guidelines for the management of ulcerative colitis, including optimization of therapies and the use of therapeutic drug monitoring
  • Describe and integrate the management of special populations: the pregnant patient
  • Describe and integrate the management of special populations: the patient with extra-intestinal manifestations
  • Describe and integrate the management of special populations: the patient with liver disease (primary sclerosing cholangitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease)
  • Describe and integrate the management of special populations: the elderly and those with comorbidities and prior malignancy
  • Recommend strategies to optimize health maintenance and prevention in patients with ulcerative colitis
  • Recognize and select the novel therapies in the pipeline for ulcerative colitis
  • Recognize and synthesize best practices surrounding telehealth delivery and shared decision-making in patients with ulcerative colitis
