Topic Information

Program Description/Statement of Need

ACG is among the premier international meetings in gastroenterology. As such, an abundance of cutting-edge data that has a direct impact on current and future practice is presented and discussed; in fact, hundreds of abstracts were presented on inflammatory bowel disease alone. However, the information presented at this meeting often requires contextualization, extensive interpretation, and analysis before integration into clinical practice. After participating in this activity, participants will be better prepared to integrate the most recent advances in the diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease into their day-to-day clinical practices.

Target Audience

This enduring activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of gastroenterologists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners involved in the management of inflammatory bowel disease.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

Describe the data presented at the American College of Gastroenterology 2014 Annual Meeting on epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis

Translate recent findings on the diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) into clinical practice
