Short Bowel Syndrome Training System
Why is this education important?
This hub provides 3 pathways to meet your needs:
Clinicians may lack knowledge about optimal, evidence-based management strategies and treatments for patients with SBS
Clinicians may lack knowledge about the best approaches to achieving the long-term goal of enteral autonomy in patients with SBS
Multidisciplinary care has clear benefits for patients with SBS, but this approach is not consistently implemented in practice
Ensuring that all clinicians have the knowledge needed to assist patients in progressing toward enteral autonomy and improved quality of life is a critical component of education about SBS. Comprehensive knowledge of strategies is paramount to success.
How does this hub support you?
The AGA Institute and ACHL partnered on this initiative to support your efforts to improve your team’s knowledge of management strategies for pediatric and adult patients with SBS. You can access expert faculty and deliver high-level education efficiently and cost-effectively.
Educators are trained to deliver targeted education considerate of diverse skills and practice settings while applying adult learning principles to foster engagement, promote critical thinking, and acquire enhanced clinical competency. Your team receives access to the latest data and critical real-world perspective and guidance for translating the data to practice.
Learners will improve their ability to apply precision medicine approaches to patients with SBS, in both the pediatric and adult care settings.
