Publisher Description

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a lifelong condition that requires continuity of care in order to optimize health outcomes. The changing landscape of therapeutics makes treating patients with IBD quite complex. Much of the comprehensive care of patients with IBD is provided by the gastroenterologist. Therefore, the need for gastroenterology fellows to understand the complete care of the patient with IBD is of great importance. 


This pocket guide was created to supplement gastroenterology fellowship education in IBD by providing a comprehensive, up-to-date, and quick-reference guide to managing this complex disease. It is designed to serve as a reference representing current available evidence and expert opinion and should not be used as a substitute for physicians’ clinical judgment.
