Answer

Education of patients and their families is encouraged and extremely important in the treatment process. Useful education materials can be obtained by contacting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

For patient education resources, see the Crohn Disease Center and the Esophagus, Stomach, and Intestine Center, as well as Crohn Disease in Children and Teens, Crohn Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
