Statement of Need

With the introduction of new treatments, treatment targets, and updated guidelines, the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is constantly evolving yet remains suboptimal. Despite being treated, many patients with IBD are not in remission or lose response to their current therapy over time. Personalized approaches are necessary, as they optimize response and integration of new drug classes, which are both important to the treatment paradigm.

Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors are one of the new treatment options for patients with IBD, and many patients prefer them over infusions and/or injections, as they are administered orally. Being rapid-acting and effective, they, along with appropriate monitoring, can reduce the risk of common complications like anemia, which is frequently overlooked in patients with IBD.

This CME Outfitters webcast features a panel of expert faculty utilizing an interactive, animated 3-D model to enhance the discussion on the mechanism of action (MOA) of JAK inhibitors, the pathophysiology of IBD, and the development of anemia, to assist HCPs in selecting the appropriate therapy for patients with IBD.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate JAK inhibitors for IBD in terms of MOA, efficacy, and safety.
  • Monitor patients with IBD for iron deficiency and anemia.
  • Select treatment for patients with IBD, taking into account disease history, disease severity, and patient preference.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE credit:

  • Evaluate JAK inhibitors for IBD in terms of MOA, efficacy, and safety.
  • Explain how to monitor patients with IBD for iron deficiency and anemia.
  • Identify treatments for patients with IBD, taking into account disease history, disease severity, and patient preference.
