Tailoring Treatment Strategies to the Patient Experience of Pain in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

This presentation will draw on qualitative and quantitative research exploring the patient experience of pain and treatment options in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The implications for treatment strategies that include both biomedical and cognitive behavioural aspects will be presented, emphasising a partnership between the patient and the multidisciplinary team when managing pain. Similarities and differences with patient experience of pain in endometriosis and RA will also be explored, including whether similar pain management strategies might be indicated.
