CARE Perspectives on ECCO/CDDW 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 Organisation) 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!
