This CME program provides a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective on the evolving management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We will be discussing unmet needs in the current identification and management of IBD; identifying tools to assist with differential diagnosis, clinical assessment, and selection of effective therapies for IBD; and exploring the underlying pathophysiology of IBD and the role of JAK inhibition in modifying therapeutic outcomes.
