Irritable Bowel Syndrome Care Plan



Ref: CP097

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Care Plan

Irritable bowel syndrome, IBS, is a common, long-term condition of the digestive system. Irritable bowel syndrome is characterised by increased or decreased strength and duration of intestinal contractions. Increased contractions cause the contents to move through the intestinal tract too quickly, whereas decreased contractions causes intestinal contents to remain stagnant in the bowel.

Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include loose stools, bloating, gas, mucous, in the stool, constipation, abdominal cramps and the strong urge to have a bowel movement.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.

Identifies the symptoms and issues experienced
