In this exclusive video from Crohn’s and Colitis Congress, Laurie Keefer, PhD, from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses her presentation on subjective well-being in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.

Keefer said it is important to assess patients for quality of life beyond disease-related measures, adding that it can be as easy as asking patients how happy they are with their lives as a whole.
