Proton-Pump Inhibitors: Navigating the Jungle of Risks and Benefits

 

There has been an increased volume of alerts regarding the risks associated with use of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs). This program will provide guidance on balancing the risks and benefits associated with chronic PPI therapy. It will also offer tools to evaluate the appropriateness of PPI therapy.  Patient cases will be utilized to demonstrate the concepts and aid in the application of said concepts to future patients.
