To improve your understanding of:

  • Early treatment with laxative therapy
  • Disimpaction and maintenance regimens
  • Referral recommendations 

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.
