51: Inflammatory Bowel Disease: in conversation with an IBD Clinical Nurse Specialist
1335
This podcast has been produced for primary care clinicians who care for patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).  GP, Dr Charlie Andrews, speaks to Aileen Fraser, an IBD specialist nurse at University Hospitals Bristol, about her role, the sorts of questions she receives from GPs, how she can help support patients and clinicians in the community.  This episode is packed with useful information for clinicians and is a must for anyone who would like to better understand the role of the IBD nurse specialist. 
 
 One in three patients with Crohns and Colitis do not have contact with an IBD specialist nurse, however, this role is expanding across the UK. In areas where patients do have contact with a specialist nurse, they are highly valued (94% of patients who had contact with an IBD specialist nurse said that this link with the hospital was important in a 2016 survey). 
 
 By working collaboratively with secondary care colleagues, primary care clinicians can have a significant impact on the quality of care provided to these patients, and the IBD specialist nurse can act as an invaluable link between primary and secondary care.

50: Inflammatory Bowel Disease and nutrition
1157
Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are very interested in the relationship between their diet and their disease. Up to 85% of patients with the condition suffer from malnutrition for a variety of reasons. In this episode Dr Charles Andrews, discusses the reasons for malnutrition and how to assess for this with Sam Poore, a specialist dietician at Bristol Royal Infirmary.  They talk about topics including ileostomy advice, the role of probiotics in IBD, and dietary modification in IBD, including the role of the low FODMAPS diet in patients with IBD in remission.

48: Inflammatory Bowel Disease in children
2394
GP, Dr Charles Andrews, talks to Dr Anthony Wiskin of Bristol Children’s Hospital about Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in children.  

25% of IBD is diagnosed under the age of 18, and when diagnosed in this age group, the disease is generally more aggressive than when diagnosed later in life.  Dr Wiskin gives a superb overview of the disease, some pointers for diagnosis and the role of faecal calprotectin in children.  Dr Andrews and Dr Wiskin talk about the huge impact of the disease on families, the sufferer, and look at the process of transitioning the child from paediatric to adult gastroenterology services.  

Feb 17, 2020
47: Fertility, pregnancy and IBD - a conversation with Dr Aarthi Mohan
1363
Does Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) affect fertility?  Do people with IBD have more adverse outcomes in pregnancy?   Are biologics, for example, Infliximab and Adalimumab, safe to use in pregnancy? How do you treat a flare in pregnancy?  If you work in primary care and you want to know the answer to these questions and lots more, this is the podcast for you.
 
 In this episode, GP, Dr Charles Andrews, discusses contraception, pregnancy and breastfeeding in people with IBD with Dr Aarthi Mohan, an experienced Obstetrician at St Michael's hospital in Bristol, who runs a quaternary level service for pregnant women with concurrent medical conditions.  She shares a wealth of experience with Dr Andrews about all aspects of fertility and pregnancy in patients with IBD.
 
According to a study by Tavernier et al., infertility rates in people with IBD is mainly due to voluntary childlessness rather than infertility contributed to by the disease itself (Tavernier et al. Systematic review: fertility in non-surgically treated inflammatory bowel disease, Alimentary pharmacology and therapeutics, Oct. 2013).  This voluntary childlessness is significantly higher than those not affected by IBD (14-18% vs. 6%) and this is mainly due to incorrect beliefs about how their disease may affect their fertility and outcomes in pregnancy. Therefore having a good knowledge of these issues is important for both primary care and secondary care clinicians looking after patients with IBD so that these patients can have accurate advice when planning their family.
 
On this podcast, they discuss:

  • Contraception
  • The effects of IBD on fertility 
  • What to do with various medications in pregnancy
  • How should we approach flare management in these patients
  • IBD and venous thromboembolism risk in pregnancy
  • Folic acid use
  • Mode of delivery in those with IBD
  • The pregnancy pathway for those with IBD
  • IBD and breastfeeding
  • Post-natal depression in patients with IBD.

You can access the IBD toolkit on the RCGP website.

The Crohns and Colitis UK website has an excellent patients' guide to IBD and pregnancy

1864
Every year organisations and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.

It may be that a patient is unable to cope with observations being taken, is not able to comply, or that staff looking after these patients are not trained in observations. For these patients, Soft Signs of deterioration take on extra significance.

They also share the evidence behind the RCGP position statement. We hope you found this podcast useful.
