Symposium

Evidence based comparison of treatments in IBD: From methodology to clinical practice

Welcome to the Symposium - Edition of May 14th, 2022

Dear BIRD members,

Dear Colleagues,

 

Welcome to our 2022 BIRD May Symposium:

Evidence based comparison of treatments in IBD: From methodology to clinical practice

The expanding therapeutic armamentarium creates an unprecedented wealth in therapeutic options. But, undoubtedly also makes the choice of the right treatment for the right patient a challenge. Well-designed clinical trials in IBD have to focus on these research problems. Choosing and designing the most appropriate study is of great importance in generating the best clinically relevant evidence.

In this focused symposium we will introduce and discuss some of the more advanced concepts and skills of research design, specifically head-to-head trials, and network meta-analysis, highlighting how these relate to evidence-based health care. Participants will also learn strategies to manage bias and assess the quality of published research.

Furthermore, we will consider the practical applications to IBD studies and discuss the Belgian research landscape.

Come and join us for this engaging and informative morning at OffiCenter Zaventem to enjoy the lectures and network with colleagues and pharma industry partners.

Places are limited to 50 people, so register fast! Register here

Looking forward to welcoming you on the 14th of May!
