Abstract

Background: We aim to assess the impact of a multidisciplinary inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) conference on the management of patients with complex IBD. Methods: Data were collected during each conference from February 2017 through October 2018 with chart review performed at 6 months to determine if conference recommendations were successfully implemented. Results: Eighty-five patients were discussed. The presenting diagnosis was changed by 11.8%. Recommendations for further testing, medical therapy, and surgery were successfully implemented in 77.1%, 98.1%, and 88.4%, respectively. Conclusions: This study supports the role of IBD multidisciplinary conferences in the management of patients with complex IBD.
