Network Goals


The Canadian Children IBD network will improve outcomes nationally by standardizing patient assessment, treatment protocols and outcome evaluations and will provide the research infrastructure and collaborative expertise to allow successful exploration of the fundamental determinants of IBD.

Broadly, the two main goals of the network are:

  1. To contribute to understanding of what causes IBD
    • Better treatments
    • Prevention strategies
  2. To lead in the optimization of treatment for the spectrum of IBD occurring in children
    • Predictors of aggressive disease
    • More personalized medicine
    • Comprehensive assessment of outcomes

Our one and only focus is to find a cure for Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and liver disorders.
