Something, something, something

You may want to consider whether the person with IBD that you are caring for could benefit from:

  • Providing information in written form throughout their journey, starting at diagnosis in the form of a patient pack
  • Assessing their fatigue levels
  • Referral to a dietician
  • Referral to your service' mental health lead or psychiatric liaison service, or local NHS or voluntary sector mental health and counselling services for anxiety and depression -either to treat presenting issues or as a preventative measure
