Introduction: Assessment of quality of life bythe effectiveness of patient education in the control group and educational group for recurrent health care in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients. Nevertheless, the Quality of life within IBD states, and their comparison in both the groups have not been well evaluated. Materials and Methods: In this study protocol, systematic analysis was conducted on 76 patients who attended frequent follow-ups at the gastrointestinal department of a tertiary care hospital in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. The study was conducted from June 2018 to March 2020 in both the control and education groups of pre-test and post-test in the life quality of IBD. Results:  A patient perspective onthe quality of life(IBD controls 8) ranges between 0 to 16 with worst to best in life quality. By comparing the two groups, it is clear that healthcare professionals should be consulted appropriately to monitor the disease and develop information about it. The educational group has a stronger association than the control group with a better quality of life. Providing a graphical booklet as an educational resource during the visit in an educational group has improved the quality of life in the post-test than without booklets in a control group. Conclusion: The studysuggests that educating patients on the disease, lifestyle, and disease management can significantly enhance treatment outcomes. To improve patient outcomes, pharmacists should promote the continuous assessment of complications for health-related life quality.
