Gastrointestinal conditions are among the top five biggest selling OTC categories in your pharmacy.1 It’s not surprising given that this includes a wide range of conditions, from upper GI issues like heartburn, reflux and indigestion, to lower GI problems, such as diarrhoea, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. It’s important your team give the best possible advice to customers experiencing GI issues, to demonstrate the value of a pharmacy visit.
If you’d like to expand or refresh your own clinical understanding of GI conditions, here are some good Continuing Professional Development links and additional resources to help you keep up-to-date with the latest evidence and practice.
