The annual Swedish Providence Update in Inflammatory Bowel Disease course will review new and forthcoming medical and surgical therapeutic approaches in IBD and its associated manifestations, as well their impact on the current management of these conditions. The therapeutic landscape in IBD continues to evolve, resulting in rapid and dramatic changes to therapeutic algorithms and disease monitoring. The course will review the impact of positioning new therapeutics, optimization of medical therapy, disease management in the perioperative period, extraintestinal manifestations, dietary, nonpharmacologic therapies and multi-disciplinary approaches to complex clinical scenarios including strictures. It will also cover novel therapies including the advent of small molecules and their impact in the management of IBD patients.

Teaching methods include lecture/didactic, Q&A with faculty, panel discussion, case presentation and audience response system.
