4 Sites: Navigating the Course Ahead

by AbbVie with support from Sciterion

Summary of work

Crohn’s disease – a chronic, debilitating and progressive disease – is on the increase worldwide, but remission rates remain disappointing. New strategies are needed to optimise outcomes; one such strategy is treat-to-target (T2T). A UK Steering Committee of Gastroenterology KOLs looked to develop an agenda to provide meaningful, practical education on T2T. Pre-meeting only 45% respondents believed that T2T improved patient outcomes with 73% respondents rating their understanding of T2T in practice as below average. Through state-of-the-art technology, the meeting was live broadcast between four main sites with four additional satellite hubs to view the meeting live one-way. This secured a broader range of faculty including local speakers to tailor each meeting to the local needs whilst maintaining a National KOL lead faculty with the unity and credibility of a ’stand-alone event’. The meeting exceeded its objectives with over 370 registered delegates; 79% of delegates post-meeting believing that T2T optimises patient outcomes (an increase of 33%), and 71% of respondents feeling confident implementing T2T (an increase of 44%). A post-meeting programme extended the reach of the programme with over 300 registrations for the T2T webinar series, implementation of T2T was demonstrated through development of 12 new UK T2T pathways.
