  • Ulcerative Colitis: A Guide for Patients

    475 views 3 months ago
    This patient education video is part of a new resource created by the ACG with support from Shire, Ulcerative Colitis: A Guide for Patients. This video featured patient stories and interviews with ACG President Stephen B. Hanauer, M.D., FACG, as well as TV celebrity Casey Abrams, an American Idol contestant and musician who is also a UC patient.

    The two resources, the ulcerative colitis guidebook and the DVD, include relevant information for patients to help them understand that UC is a treatable condition that can be managed effectively. This resource will be available for patients who are newly diagnosed or have questions about UC, as well as their loved ones and caregivers.

    The guidebook includes an overview of the condition, causes, signs and symptoms, how it is diagnosed, treatment options, information on managing diet, finding help and support, pregnancy and UC, and a list of additional resources.

    The DVD ties in with the guidebook topics and provides approximately 15 minutes of information on UC. It also provides examples of patient stories, commentary by Dr. Hanauer, and a profile of Casey Abrams.

    There are several ways ACG members can gain access to this resource for their patients and practices. You may request a copy of the guidebook or postcards to distribute to your patients by emailing info@gi.org. Show less
