RCGP IBD Toolkit Official Launch

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), in partnership with Crohn's and Colitis UK, has launched a IBD toolkit for GPs and healthcare professionals.

RCGP's Clinical Champion for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Dr Kevin Barrett, who developed the toolkit together with the patient representative Rachel Fowler and the project's steering group, comments "Inflammatory Bowel Disease affects at least 1 in 250 of the UK population and the prevalence is rising. Early diagnosis, managing flares, supporting patients to stay well and monitoring long-term risks are all vital aspects of care. The RCGP's IBD toolkit is designed to help GPs better identify and manage IBD, and provide education resources for healthcare professionals and patients alike."

Jackie Glatter, Health Service Development Manager at Crohn's and Colitis UK said, "GPs play a really important role in identifying people with suspected IBD and supporting these patients throughout their lives, in conjunction with the secondary care team. We are delighted to be working in partnership with the RCGP to provide resources for GPs and to highlight the information and support we can provide for people with IBD."

The IBD toolkit (www.rcgp.org.uk/clinical-and-research/toolkits/inflammatory-bowel-disease-toolkit.aspx) has been produced as part of the College's Spotlight Project on inflammatory bowel disease, which will be delivering a number of free workshops and further learning resources for GPs throughout 2017/2018.
