Clinical experts Maria T. Abreu, MD, AGAF, and Raymond K. Cross, MD, MS, AGAF present the latest evidence for managing patients with ulcerative colitis and translate evidence to clinical practice through patient cases and a live Q&A session.

CME Outfitters, LLC (CMEO) in collaboration with USF Health, is hosting a brand new interactive CME symposium in conjunction with the 2014 Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Clinical & Research Conference in Orlando, Florida on December 6, 2014. Registration for the symposium is available at Dr. Abreu and Dr. Cross, two of the nations most esteemed gastroenterology experts, will lead the symposium titled, A Patient-Centered Approach to Achieve Remission in Ulcerative Colitis, will help clinicians tackle the following practice challenges:

1.    Establish goals of treatment that focus not only on symptomatic relief, but strive for mucosal healing and durable remission for patients with ulcerative colitis.
2.    Institute an "interactive treatment plan" that includes regular participation by the patient to promote active management of their ulcerative colitis and adherence to treatment.
3.    Implement a well-informed treatment plan that focuses on efficacy and safety and utilizes conventional and anti-TNF inhibitors where appropriate, to optimize the long-term treatment in patients with ulcerative colitis.

Truly unique to the general setting of medical symposia, the faculty will teach the course via an interactive case challenge workshop, where faculty will engage participants in collaborative discussion of the data using audience response technology, and patient case vignettes to identify challenges, share insights, and problem-solve to improve the care of patients with UC.

In order to attend the symposium, clinicians must be registered for the Advances in IBD meeting. Registration is available at For additional details about the session, including faculty information, financial support, credit information, and more, please visit
