However, many people with IBD will have long periods when they have few or no symptoms at all. People with Inflammatory Bowel Disease want to work, and in many cases have the health to work, however a range of factors can cause barriers to managing their IBD at work.

This webinar will present current research evidence on the impacts of IBD on work abilities and the types of resources that employees are seeking to assist them in maintaining employment despite their chronic disease.

Take-home messages

  • Up to 90% of IBD patients require accommodations but as many as two-thirds are not able to make work adjustments to avoid taking time off.
  • Perhaps the most common accommodations most required are access to a toilet or toilet breaks and time off to attend medical appointments.
