IBD Resources for Clinicians/IBD Tweets

Another website with a few useful resources:

  • Steroid taper calendar -helps develop a calendar (can use to print out or take a picture)
  • Imaging risk calculator -this is not that great.  In essence if you have a patient present to ER with a CRP of 1 mg/dL and ESR of 20, it states that risk of a complication like a perforation is “NOT LOW” and to consider imaging
  • IBD School Video collection -links to UM website

Note -therapeutic drug monitoring may be more useful in children due to their changing size.
