About This Webinar

Inflammatory bowel diseases are costly chronic conditions that substantially impact quality of life and well-being. Empowered, resilient patients achieve better outcomes by optimizing their disease self-management skills in between doctor visits. Attendees will hear from providers and patients as to how technology can improve access to better outcomes through effective disease self-management, how an individual’s pursuit of happiness and well-being can determine disease self-management behavior and how resilience can inform one’s journey through chronic disease.

We will discuss common barriers (patient and health system) to the effective implementation of IBD care and how these gaps impact optimal disease outcomes. We will also address what patients want out of their care and how an individual’s ability to pursue happiness and emotional and physical well-being can determine disease self-management behavior. Finally, we will focus on how resilience training can improve long-term outcomes for people living with chronic conditions and when delivered through a technology-enabled platform can democratize access to care.

Attendees Will Be Able To

  • Identify how management of chronic conditions is directly impacted by patient behaviors
  • Name 2 primary determinants of self-management behavior
  • Learn from a patient why resilience training is critical to thriving with a chronic condition
