THE ROLE OF THE IBD NURSE
The role of the IBD nurse is to support patients with Crohn’s or colitis. We have a helpline in which patients call and we respond on the days we are working. We deal with rapid assessments and deal with flares when they occur. We are an excellent advocate for the patients and discuss their treatment plans with the relevant consultant. We have our own clinics where patients can come and consult with us, discuss issues and we educate patients on their disease. We teach patients self injecting techniques and are there for ongoing support.
It is an important role which is increasing in its demand. We are very passionate about our roles and are here to make a different within the IBD world.
