This symposium brings together the world’s leading authorities on IBS and gives you a chance to interact with them. Dr. Lin Chang and Dr. Bill Chey will give practical advice on drug management, and Drs. Magnus Simren and Sheila Crowe will teach you how to use diet and probiotics. Drs. Jeff Lackner, Laura Keefer, and Olafur Palsson will explain how psychologists can help your patient and teach you how to make a referral. Dr. Doug Drossman, President of the Rome Foundation, will lead a session on the use of the Rome criteria in clinical practice and he will explain how to optimize the doctor patient relationship.
The symposium will also benefit psychologists by describing cognitive behavior therapy, hypnosis, and complementary medicine techniques that have proven effectiveness in IBS. Psychologists will also learn how to collaborate with gastroenterologists in the management of these patients.
