Properly managing IBD symptoms goes well beyond just medical treatment—it requires work and understanding from the patient and his or her family. Our patients and their families routinely meet with a team of Boston Children's educators who teach them about their condition and its treatment. We believe that the more our patients know about their IBD and its management, the easier it is to control.
We have several types of digital, printed and video materials for families, all centered on IBD education and management
The following videos describe the basics of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
