Statement of Need

The goal of treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC) is achieving and sustaining remission. Variations in treatment patterns and care for moderate-to-severe UC are prevalent despite data demonstrating that early appropriate biologic therapy is more effective than conventional management of disease. The AGA has developed an evidence-based UC Care Pathway to guide treatment decisions for moderate- to high-risk patients; yet, in clinical practice, many clinicians are not integrating this pathway into their decision-making.

Join the CME Outfitters mobile case series designed to test your knowledge, confidence, and performance in optimizing treatment for patients with UC.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Examine strategies to improve clinical decision-making in patients with ulcerative colitis.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA.

Gastroenterologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who treat patients with Ulcerative Colitis.
