Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic, frequently progressive condition that affects approximately 1 to 1.3 million people in the United States. Substantial room for improvement in the care of patients with IBD is needed. Clinical outcomes of patients with IBD are diminished by multiple factors, including uncertainty about approaches to diagnosis, assessment, and treatment, as well as a lack of knowledge about available therapies. To meet the persistent challenges associated with IBD management, health care professionals must be knowledgeable about the evidence-based and expert-recommended strategies for the treatment of patients with IBD. This unique continuing medical education program is designed to instruct gastroenterologists and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with IBD by presenting expert information as presented from nationally recognized faculty members.
