Today in IBD: Managing IBD in the Era of Covid-19

Managing Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in the Era of COVID-19 will thoroughly review the multi-society global recommendations for assessment and management of IBD during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes data on the evolving epidemiology of COVID-19, and specifically what is known about it in patients with IBD. It will provide state-of-the-art education regarding best-practices for telehealth and other non-endoscopic and distance management strategies, evidence supporting non-invasive monitoring of both disease activity and anti-inflammatory therapies, and strategies for de-intensification, cessation, and restarting IBD therapies safely and effectively during this unique and challenging time. Key topics of this timely webinar include: Overview of SARS-CoV-2; COVID-19 and IBD; The optimum management of IBD during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic; Best practices for telehealth now and into the future; Monitoring patients with IBD during extraordinary times.
