In ImproveCareNow we believe in "sharing seamlessly and stealing shamelessly," which essentially means if someone has an idea and develops something useful, it is shared widely so others across the network can benefit from their work. Our culture of generosity and sharing allows us to spread new ideas and innovations quickly, so they can impact many more lives.

We maintain a selection of tools & resources on our website, which can be accessed at any time. Here are a few highlights and recent updates.

NEW Section Added: Talking About IBD

This new section features the Crohn’s & Colitis Storybook, which was created by the Patient Advisory Council to address a need for more discussion and perspectives from young people about the realities of living with IBD. This 48-page booklet, beautifully presents an array of contributor profiles, and their thoughts on topics ranging from Education to Self-Care to Relationships, and general perspectives on IBD in their own lives. There are 15 specific questions answered throughout this resource, and it is now available for free download here >>

UPDATED: Transition to Adult Care Resources

We recently updated an article originally written for a 2013 issue of CIRCLE eNewsletter by Sandy Kim, MD and Maureen Kelly, RN, MS, CPNP. In it they discuss transition from the clinician perspective, outline transition stages and goals for parents and patients, and provide answers to frequently asked transition questions. It is available here >>

UPDATED: Staying Healthy

The role of diet in the management of IBD is currently being investigated, but there are several informational resources related to eating and supplementation, which have been created by members of the ImproveCareNow Community. These resources have been reviewed and updated recently. They are available in the Eating Right section of Staying Healthy with IBD >>
