Statement of Need

The Cleveland Clinic estimates that less than 20% of patients with IBD seen in their Digestive Disease & Surgery Institute have received appropriate immunization and preventative services that align with national guidelines and recommendations. Education is an important component for creating a roadmap and gaining buy-in among clinicians to implement change in practice. Educational interventions to both healthcare professionals (HCPs) and patients as part of the project to improve patient health, vaccination rates, and preventive services are essential for these changes.

Outside of the clinic, digital health coaching presents additional opportunities to supplement and support patient education and reinforce the need to complete all necessary vaccinations among a group of 100 patients. Patient-reported outcomes and feedback will be collected to assess improvements in vaccination and preventive health literacy, communication with providers, and shared decision-making.

In this CME Outfitters Live and On Demand, expert faculty will discuss best practices for vaccinations and preventive services among individuals with IBD along with resources that will help clinicians to truly engage patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate recommended immunizations for patients with IBD into clinical practice.
  • Implement guideline-based methods for preventive health maintenance among patients with IBD.
  • Employ successful approaches to coordinated patient-centered care for patients with IBD, including the establishment of an IBD medical home.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Identify recommended immunizations for patients with IBD into clinical practice.
