Overview:  In this activity, Dr. Ken Fujioka utilizes a novel storytelling approach to examine the optimal management of SBS in the context of current evidence.

Target Audience:  This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of gastroenterologists, family physicians, surgeons, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with short bowel syndrome.


Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Assess patient history to define bowel anatomy and identify previous steps taken for the management of short bowel syndrome (SBS) and associated intestinal failure (IF)
  2. Recognize supportive and therapeutic approaches, including dietary modification, antidiarrheal and antisecretory drugs, parenteral support, and targeted pharmacotherapy, to manage SBS-IF
  3. Apply individualized evidence-based treatment plans to optimize intestinal rehabilitation and minimize parenteral support in patients with SBS-IF
  4. Employ effective strategies to communicate with patients on treatment goals and expected complications, and monitor them for treatment adherence and adjustment based on response
