Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, referred to collectively as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are chronic debilitating disorders. IBD, particularly Crohn’s disease, is increasing everywhere, most notably in the Western world where about 1 in 200 people now has the condition. This highly readable, ‘zippy’ fifth edition of Fast Facts: Inflammatory Bowel Disease provides succinct yet thorough information that will aid early recognition of these disorders and their complications, alongside practical holistic management advice.
With important emphasis on the doctor–patient relationship and effective multidisciplinary services, Fast Facts: Inflammatory Bowel Disease is an invaluable resource for all primary care providers, hospital doctors in training, nurses, stoma therapists, dieticians, psychologists, counselors and social workers; in fact, all health professionals involved in the care of patients with IBD, as well as patients who wish to know more about their condition.
“A great primer on IBD, covering novel approaches to therapy, patient-centered care and the latest assessment of disease activity and prognosis. It should be on every gastroenterology workstation and all the smartphones of the clinical team.”
Simon Travis, Translational Gastroenterology Unit, Oxford
President of the European Crohn’s & Colitis Organisation (ECCO) 2012–2014
"Given that healthcare economics now dictate that management of these difficult and challenging diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) is no longer confined to IBD specialists, such a well-informed and concise book for other healthcare professionals should help to maintain a high level of patient care."

"Fast Facts, are so beautifully produced, so nice, you don't want them on your computer, you want them on your shelf. They are not a reference work, you read them in a couple of hours."
