Motility and the Mind-Gut Connection

Published on

Understanding the mind/gut connection in motility disorders was the topic of a recent Gastroenterology Town Hall at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The CME was presented virtually on Nov. 11, 2020.

CHOP pediatric gastroenterologists presented three educational sessions about hot topics in motility, including:

  • Demystifying the Distinctions Between Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) by Art Kastl, MD
  • Keeping Things Moving: Diagnosis and Treatment of Pediatric Constipation by Jennifer Webster, DO
  • Interdisciplinary Care for Pediatric Functional GI Disorders by Kari F. Baber, PhD

The sessions were followed by a Q&A panel that included GI experts from CHOP: David A. Piccoli, MD, Georgia Pitsakis, MSW, LCSW, and Dr. Kastl, Dr. Webster and Dr. Baber. The session was moderated by Dr. Piccoli.

The Nov. 11 event was accredited for 1.5 AMA PRA Category I Credit by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
