The majority of patients with IBD report significant fatigue as a complaint. Although fatigue is seen in patients with active IBD, the complaint is also described in roughly 30-40% of patients with inactive disease. Considering the protean nature of the complaint as well as the prevalence in IBD patients, a coordinated multi-faceted assessment of fatigue is required, with input of multi-specialties. The goal of the session is to allow attendees an algorithm and means to assess complaints related to IBD associated fatigue.
Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this educational program, the learner will obtain a better understanding on the multifaceted causes of fatigue in IBD patients and review an algorithm for the management of fatigue.
