IBS and Abuse in Women

leave a comment »

ReachMD is offering a free CE program on the connection between irritable bowel syndrome and abuse in women. The objective for the program is to, “understand the association between IBS and abuse, effectively interview individuals with a history of abuse, identify physical and psychological disorders suggestive of abuse, and implement strategies to manage IBS patients with a history of abuse”.

The format is a podcast and posttest; the podcast can be listened to online or downloaded for later consumption (it’s 15 minutes long). CEs range from 0.25 to 0.3 depending on whether you’re looking for physician, nurse practitioner, or nursing credits (they outline it in greater detail on the site). Requires registration to participate if you’ve never signed on to the site before.
