ON DEMAND: Managing IBD during a pandemic

The continued threat of COVID-19 has implications for the long-term management of patients with chronic diseases, including those with IBD.

On Thursday 14th May a panel of leading experts discussed the risks of COVID-19 for people living with IBD, how best to adapt therapy during the current pandemic, and the implications for infusion centres and interventional procedures.

With a live cross to Dr Ryan Ungaro at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, we heard how gastroenterologists have navigated the issues surrounding the management of their patients with IBD in this challenging time.
