Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Resource
Do symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome affect your quality of life?
Would you like to manage your symptoms better?
Do you have a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
A collaborative study between JCU and QLD Health has developed and is currently trialling an online, self-directed therapeutic resource aimed at reducing symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and improving the participant’s quality of life.
The resource includes:
• Up to date information on IBS, the diagnostic process, the digestive system, why it appears, and how to go about improving your situation – and plenty more.
•Skills to engage in more helpful behaviours and thoughts to improve symptom management
•Information about the role of mind-body link and stress, and how it is not just “in your head”
•Pick and choose subject areas that are most relevant to your situation
•Links to other resources
•All online in the privacy of your own home (or computer!)
•Participation is confidential
