This animation describes the goals of IBD management, including an accurate diagnosis, achieving disease remission and maintaining the remission without steroids, and dealing with the variety of emotional, psychological, and medical issues that may arise during IBD treatment. Ways that patient can take an active role in the management of their disease are also provided.
