Pragmatic Clinical Research

Pragmatic clinical research focuses on improving evidence for how to best treat patients to improve quality of life and disease outcomes in real-world practice. This includes evaluating and improving healthcare delivery and decreasing barriers for all patients. Research gaps were identified in the following areas: understanding the needs of understudied patient groups and addressing barriers to care so all patients receive optimal care; validating and using biomarkers to enable early diagnosis and result in better outcomes for adults and children with IBD; and determining the optimal sequencing of treatments (medical, surgical, adjunct) in children and adults.
