Statement of Need

There are many disparities in irritable bowel disease (IBD) care, with an incidence rate of IBD hospitalization that is 4x higher in patients with low socio-economic status and a 3x increased ratio of IBD hospitalizations and mortality in Blacks compared to Whites and Hispanics.

The final episode of this CMEOCast podcast series summarizes the discussion points on the racial/ethnic and economic inequality in IBD and offers approaches to mitigate disparities on the level of both individual health care providers and systems. Expert faculty discuss the downstream effects of structural racism, offer tips for utilizing telehealth to engage minorities, and go over the interventions to increase treatment adherence.
