This IBD Dialog will discuss some of the key highlights and insights from Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2015, held in Washington, DC. The IBD Dialog, in the format of a Faculty Roundtable discussion, will offer a clinically focused update on some of the important information presented during DDW, as selected by our faculty. The activity will provide you with an insight into some of the key clinical data allowing you to implement new understanding into your own practice.

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of gastroenterologists and registered nurses involved in the care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
