Around 60% of individuals in Australia have gastrointestinal (GI) problems at any one time. A growing body of research indicates that the brain-gut-axis plays an important role in the development of pathology in GI conditions, having both physical and psychological components and effects. In clinical practice, it is not uncommon for patients to associate GI related concerns (e.g. nausea, abdominal discomfort and pain) with their psychological distress. In this workshop, Rose will provide a background briefing to the physiological and psychological processes associated with chronic GI conditions, with a specific focus on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
