Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder, which globally accounts for up to half of all referrals to gastroenterologists. It is a particularly complex condition, which can have a detrimental effect on the patient's health-related quality of life and psychosocial wellbeing. In recent years, there has been an increasing trend in the use of non-pharmacological interventions in the management of IBS, including mindfulness-based treatments (MBT). In this clinical skills article, Graeme D Smith examines the role of mindfulness in the management of IBS from a gastrointestinal nursing perspective.
