Event Details

Background

Functional bowel disorders represent a major health care burden, with significant impact on the quality of life involving at least 10 to 15 percent of the general population. Recent advances suggest that the field is well positioned for transformative advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of these disorders, which will benefit patients. This workshop will focus on elucidating the research gaps in our current knowledge and how to address these gaps in a timely and effective manner.
