For IBD Patients, Transitions Are a Challenge

Nov. 1, 2017

IBD experts provide tips to help your patients as they transition from pediatric to adult care, or to a new physician when going off to college.

The treatment of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients has its own set of complications, which includes the transition to adult-centered care and going off to college. Watch the brief videos below where leading IBD experts and faculty for the upcoming Crohn’s & Colitis Congress™ provide tips for managing these transitions.

For more practical guidance on improving the care of your IBD patients, register for the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress, taking place Jan. 18-20 in Las Vegas, NV. The Congress — organized by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (formerly CCFA) and AGA — is the must-attend meeting for all IBD professionals, offering a bold, multidisciplinary, forward-thinking approach to learning in the IBD space.
