Description:

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, immune-mediated, intestinal condition. It involves inappropriate immune responses in the gut, resulting in chronic inflammation of the mucous membranes of the colon. Ulcerative colitis affects individuals across the globe, and its incidence rates are increasing. This learning program is designed to introduce you to the disease state and clinical management of ulcerative colitis. The program begins with a brief overview of the nature of inflammatory bowel diseases followed by a look at the epidemiology of ulcerative colitis. You will then review the pathology of the disease. You will also learn about the basics of its clinical diagnosis and treatment options used to induce and maintain disease remission.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Define ulcerative colitis.
  • Summarize the epidemiological information about ulcerative colitis.
  • Describe the symptoms, pathology, and complications of ulcerative colitis.
  • Explain the diagnostic procedures for ulcerative colitis.
  • List and describe the pharmacological treatment options for ulcerative colitis.
