Welcome to your first step in becoming an AGA-recognized educator in SBS!

Whether you’re delivering educational programs or simply using this training to supplement your current knowledge in SBS, you’ve made a great decision to join us in this path to enhancing clinical practice and patient care.

What to Expect From This Assessment

As a first step to becoming an AGA-recognized educator, please complete an assessment of your SBS knowledge to analyze your strengths and/or deepen understanding of particular SBS topics. As part of this assessment, you will answer a total of 22 questions across these domains:

  1. Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, and Etiology of SBS
  2. Clinical Manifestations and Prognosis
  3. SBS Treatment Strategies and Goals
  4. Treatment Advances for SBS
  5. Achieving and Maintaining Enteral Autonomy

Upon completion of this assessment, you’ll receive an “assessment summary” with personalized recommendations and resources. We suggest that you review these resources before proceeding to your next step. These assessment results are only available to you and will not become part of your educator profile should you opt-in to being listed in the AGA SBS Educator Directory.
