Are you in search of materials to help explain TH2 diseases such as eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) to your patients? Look no further. The College has several new patient-focused resources that supply information in an easy-to-read format and walk patients through symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and management.
Recently, the College mailed patient guides in English and Spanish to all members. The patient guides are designed to be used in your office as tools when talking with patients about diagnosis, treatment and management of EoE, as well as CRSwNP. The guides follow the most current guidelines and offer available science on both EoE and CRSwNP. They will assist you in making your patients’ journey to finding relief for their allergic conditions as informed as possible.
The information provided – along with a physical exam and detailed history – helps explain why you might suggest one form of treatment over another. The College designed the guides as a complement to our other patient guides on adult and pediatric asthma, atopic dermatitis and CRSwNP. They are made of sturdy paper and can be used repeatedly as you speak with patients about their conditions. All the guides work together as a suite to help facilitate discussions with your patients on their allergic conditions.
If you would like additional patient guides mailed to your office, contact Hollis Heavenrich-Jones, Director of Public Relations.
Online patient brochures
Two new online patient brochures on EoE are available on the member website as a member benefit. PDFs of the brochures – one in English and one in Spanish – can be downloaded by members and printed for patient visits. The PDFs can also be made available on practice websites and through patient portals to help patients navigate the complexities of the disease.
EoE web pages
Two new web pages on the College’s public website – one in English and one in Spanish – address EoE. The pages provide guidance on what a patient might experience in terms of symptoms and diagnosis, and the importance of working with both a gastroenterologist and an allergist. The pages also discuss possible treatment options, including biologics.
All three resources provide member allergists with new tools to help patients understand EoE and other TH2 conditions. The guides, web pages and brochures are supported by Sanofi and Regeneron.
