Purpose: To apply research utilization in developing a set of evidence based practice guidelines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in the primary care setting. Methods: A critical review, analysis, and synthesis of recent literature on the various treatment modalities currently used in the management of IBS. Utilizing the conclusions drawn in the research and in accordance with the current position of the American Gastroenterology Association (AGA), a stratified set of treatment guidelines were devised to elucidate the management of IBS in the primary care setting. An algorithm based model was developed based on the statistical data reported in the research articles in regard to the most effective behavioral methods, pharmacologic agents, and specialty referrals delivered in a timely manner. Conclusions: The review and synthesis of current research enabled the dissemination of a succinct stratified treatment algorithm that can be easily implemented in any primary care setting. By utilizing the algorithm, primary management of IBS can be done in a timely, cost efficient manner with optimal outcomes. Implications: The successful treatment of IBS can be achieved by an informed clinician dedicated to improving the quality of life of those suffering from IBS along with a strong commitment to research utilization and evidence-based practice.
