Gastroenterology

23 Mar 2017

CARE™ (Community. Academic. Research. Education.) believes in: optimization of current therapy, innovation with new treatments, accessibility, and competition; considered in ways that deliver better healthcare solutions to Canadians.

In keeping with these beliefs, this issue of CARE™ Perspectives explores abstracts and research presented at both the 12th annual ECCO (European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization) congress held in Barcelona, Spain (February 15-18, 2017) and the CDDW (Canadian Digestive Diseases Week) meeting in Banff, Alberta (March 3-6, 2017).

This report includes content on inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as updates on what the CARE™ Gastroenterology Faculty has been working on. Content is contextualized and framed from a Canadian perspective.  We hope you find this valuable and stay tuned for more gastroenterology updates in 2017!
