AbstractIBD patients want to be informed of all potential adverse events and identify their gastroenterologist as their principal information source. The majority have no knowledge regarding or underestimate the toxicity of common IBD medications. This places a responsibility on gastroenterologists to manage and meet patients' expectations in the area of medication safety.
