Before starting treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), patients should make sure that they are prepared. This animation describes ways in which patients can learn about their therapy, including learning about the risks of under-treated or untreated IBD, learning about the risks and benefits of the therapy, and being aware of the side effects associated with the treatment. The animation also discusses the need for appropriate vaccinations in people with IBD.
