May 12, 2016

Canadians living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) will have access to better care thanks to the first Pan-Canadian network of leading Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patient care and research centres. The network, called PACE, which stands for Promoting Access and Care through Centres of Excellence, was launched today at the Montreal General Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) in tandem with four other sites across Canada.

"Through this innovative PACE initiative we will be able to measure success in delivering care to our IBD patients and influence change" says Dr. Alain Bitton, director of the Division of Gastroenterology at the MUHC and McGill University. Dr. Bitton is also a member of the Infectious Diseases and Immunity in Global Health Program of the Research Institute of the MUHC.
