Raising Awareness of PSC in the IBD Nursing Community
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and the role of the clinical nurse specialist
A recent PSC article, co-authored by PSC Support, was published in the December 2015 Liver supplement of Gastrointestinal Nursing Journal. With around 5% of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) sufferers estimated to also have PSC, it's important that IBD nurses are able to both spot potential PSC symptoms and holistically manage those of us already affected with both ailments. The article enables IBD nurses better understand PSC and be alert to PSC symptoms in their patients.
Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences of IBD and PSC and to those who took part in our IBD nurse care poll, which helped inform some of the article's content.
