PRACTICAL POSSIBILITIES TO EMPOWER PATIENTS IN MANAGEMENT OF INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE

RAHEEM FARISTA, PRADEEP M MURAGUNDI.

Abstract
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be a very embarrassing disease and has a serious impact on the day-to-day lives of the patients and their
families. The practical implication of the need to access the toilets frequently and manage situations and people in day-to-day life is a prime concern
for most of the patients. If right resources and support are provided to these patients, it can make their day-to-day living easier. The article
highlights the concerns of the IBD patients wherein they face hurdles in their personal, professional and social life. It guides on self-management of
the disease and encourages them to stay optimistic in fighting with the physical and emotional effects of the disease. In addition, the article captures
a few interesting initiatives taken up the patient associations and pharma companies to create awareness and support to the patients. Patient
education and support in the form of services/initiatives from healthcare stakeholders can empower the patients to take control of their lives
despite the debilitation caused by the disease. With the prevalence of the disease increasing, it is extremely pivotal to create awareness about the
disease among the general public as well to empathize the situations of the IBD patients.

Key words: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Patient care, Awareness, Services, Patient support program and living with IBD
