An Update on the Unmet Needs in the Care of Patients With Ulcerative Colitis and Emerging Treatment (CME/CE Monograph)

Activity Description and Purpose

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory condition characterized by abdominal cramping, bloody stools, tenesmus, and urgency. Manifesting most often in adolescence and early adulthood, UC exhibits considerable clinical heterogeneity and frequently detracts from patient-related quality of life. Although the quantity and quality of options to treat UC has risen over time, opportunities remain to optimize care for those diagnosed with this highly disruptive disease. The desired results of this activity are to improve the care of patients living with UC. This activity will also be available through CMEZone and Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News.
