Strategies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Management: Integrating Evidence and Collaborative Care

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Despite advances in the management of IBD, care remains suboptimal with some patients in the community undergoing colectomy without having ever received recommended biologic therapy. In addition, the extra-intestinal manifestations of IBD overlap with many with rheumatic and other related conditions, requiring coordinated and collaborative efforts across multiple disciplines and treatment settings. This session will focus on the use of combination therapy with biologics and immunosuppressants in reaching treatment targets in the IBD patient population. Further, current evidence and recommendations in the diagnosis, treatment, and therapeutic monitoring of IBD as well as practical strategies to coordinate care across academic/hospital-based and community gastroenterologists as well as related specialty disciplines, such as rheumatologists, will be explored.

  • Integrate evidence-based diagnostic, treatment, and monitoring strategies for the management of patients with IBD
  • Describe the most recent data and recommendations surrounding the safety and efficacy of current and emerging biologic therapies and the importance of a treat-to-target approach in the management of IBD
  • Implement strategies to improve multidisciplinary and collaborative care efforts for the management of patients with IBD, including patients with extra-intestinal manifestations
