Assessing which care guideline to follow can be a challenge for many providers who care for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). To help IBD health care professionals navigate these complexities, the 2019 Crohn’s & Colitis Congress® will focus its opening session on How to Make Sense of Care Guidelines.


The session, led by Marla Dubinsky, MD, of Mount Sinai and Gary Lichtenstein, MD, AGAF, of the University of Pennsylvania, will review U.S. and international IBD guidelines as well as areas of specialty related to IBD.


How to Make Sense of Care Guidelines will provide IBD specialists with “foundational information about what we know based on evidence, what is recommended, how practices may deviate from them and very importantly the types of patients that don’t fit neatly into guidelines and the gaps that exist,” said David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF, of the University of Chicago and co-chair of the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress organizing committee. You can hear more from Dr. Rubin about this session in the video below.




The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress — a partnership of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and AGA — provides a multidisciplinary perspective on treating IBD for health care professionals and researchers and will be held Feb. 7–9, 2019, in Las Vegas. Discounted registration rates apply through Dec. 12. Abstracts are due Oct. 24.
