This Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage Update is designed to improve management of patient care, promote collaboration, and accelerate the decision-making between providers and patients. The goal is to decrease the time between diagnosis and treatment and ensure appropriate referral patterns, thus creating a more positive patient outcome.
Gastrointestinal (GI) hemorrhage is a common and serious medical problem resulting in significant morbidity and mortality in patient populations from all medical disciplines. Its etiology is diverse and presentations can range from chronic and undetectable to acute and life threatening. Diagnosis and proper management of GI hemorrhage can be challenging, particularly with acute attacks. Furthermore, GI hemorrhage can lead to significant health care cost burden on the health system. Thus, educational initiatives that improve outcomes from GI hemorrhage can have a significant effect on this patient population.
