CARE™ Gastroenterology Faculty Guidance

Considerations for IBD Patient Management and Treatment during COVID-19 Era


24 Sep 2020

Why a Guidance for treating patients during COVID-19 is important:

Goal for Gastroenterology Practice in Canada – protect vulnerable patients (specifically those with UC and CD) from potentially fatal infection without jeopardizing treatments.

  • The long-term outcomes of COVID-19 in IBD patients is not fully understood.
  • The timing and impact of future waves of infection and delivery of a vaccine are unknown.
  • Without effective and sustained containment measures, like eliminating all non-essential clinic visits, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may lead to healthcare needs exceeding system capacity.
