The gut microbiome is an emerging field in medicine. There are newer data describing a healthy microbiome in humans. Several genetic, environmental and dietary factors define the composition of the microbiome. There are associations between altered microbiome and health and disease. Alterations of the gut microbiome can be corrected with fecal microbiota transplantation which can help alleviate certain diseases such as recurrent C difficile infection. This activity will help improve understanding of the gut microbiome, its association with diseases and modulation of the microbiome to help alleviate diseases.

At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to:

  1. Understand the importance of the gut microbiome to health and disease.
  2. Understand dysbiosis in relation to Gastrointestinal disease.
  3. Describe modulation of the gut microbiome to help treat illness.

Intended Audience: Physicians, Advance Practice Professionals, Nurses, Medical students (rotating)
