It takes a village!
Throughout the past 11 days we have shared a wealth of information related to improving your well-being and gastrointestinal health. If you noticed, there were several individuals contributing to this wealth of information including a Gastroenterologist, Nurse Practitioner, Dietitian, Behavior Counselor, Fitness Consultant, and Nurses.
An interdisciplinary approach relies on health professionals from different disciplines, along with the patient, working collaboratively as a team. The most effective teams share responsibilities and promote connection between the roles. The need for interdisciplinary teams has increased as a result of several factors. Of utmost importance is the increased complexity of skills and knowledge required to provide comprehensive care to patients. Given teamwork is centered on solid communication, patients and their families feel more at ease and report they accept treatments and feel more satisfied with their health care when working with an interdisciplinary team. No longer is one person responsible for the patient’s health; today, an entire team of health workers come together to coordinate a patient’s well-being.
We want to be that team for you! Especially if you are struggling with a more challenging to tackle condition, such as weight management, irritable bowel syndrome, or inflammatory bowel disease, our model of care provides the best tools to make meaningful progress.
