Description

Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic condition that touches every aspect of a person’s life, from their relationships to their work and education. What’s more, there is a biological connection between a person’s brain and their gut, so mental health and gut health are often closely intertwined.

Psychological health in IBD has never been more important; however, our research shows that only 1 in 10 patients have a psychologist as part of their treatment team. By signing up for this GutSmart course, you can help to meet a growing need for sensitive, informed psychological care. 

Psychological Health in IBD is designed to provide you with IBD-specific knowledge that you can apply in your practice as a psychologist.

It can be counted towards 12 CPD hours and includes:

  • Case studies
  • Quizzes
  • Examples of practice
  • A certificate of completion

The course is accessible immediately upon enrolment and remains so for one year – price inclusive of GST.

 

The objectives of this course are to:

  • Understand the biological processes behind the development and presentation of IBD
  • Appreciate the role of the gut-brain axis in physical and psychological wellbeing in IBD
  • Explore the diagnosis and treatment of IBD, including medical, surgical, and nutritional strategies
  • Discover the psychosocial impacts of IBD at different points in the patient journey
  • Apply the above insights to the psychological management of IBD patients
  • Identify and reflect on the different psychotherapies used for managing pain, building disease self-management skills, and everything in between
