The MDCP redefines the ways in which clinicians can care for patients having even the most complex functional GI disorders. The Rome IV Multidimensional Clinical Profile for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders 2nd edition (PDF) is a case-based learning module that updates the content of the first MDCP ebook published in 2015. There are over seventy cases, more than double that in the 1st edition, and all cases are revised to meet the Rome IV diagnostic standards.

The ebook helps the clinician understand the dimensionality and complexity of these disorders. Discerning clinicians recognize that just making a diagnosis is not sufficient to determine treatment. For example, a patient with IBS-D having mild and occasional symptoms of abdominal discomfort and loose stools and functioning without impairment would be treated quite differently than a patient with the same diagnosis having continuous severe and disabling pain and comorbid anxiety disorder with fears of incontinence when leaving their house.
