Description

Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel condition that affects more than 115,000 people in the UK. This learning module focuses on Crohn's disease in adolescents. Management of the condition in this group should address adolescent-specific characteristics and treatment goals. Key elements include optimising growth, pubertal development and social functioning, including education. The condition can affect an individual's mental and emotional wellbeing significantly, as well as their physical health. As adolescence is a time of great change, the additional burden of a chronic illness can prove difficult to manage. The authors provide information on the presentation of Crohn's disease in adolescence and insights into the particular issues encountered by this group.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Describe the signs and symptoms of Crohn's disease.
Outline the steps involved in diagnosing the condition in adolescents.
Explain how adolescents with the condition may be supported to improve their emotional wellbeing.
Describe the pharmacological treatments available for Crohn's disease and the order in which these treatments should be introduced.
