CROHN’S AND COLITIS CANADA PROUDLY INTRODUCES THE COUNTRY’S FIRST NATIONAL NETWORK OF LEADING CROHN’S DISEASE AND ULCERATIVE COLITIS PATIENT CARE AND RESEARCH CENTRES.

The Promoting Access and Care through Centres of Excellence (PACE) network represents the largest Canadian collaboration for adults living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. It unites leading Canadian researchers in order to combine areas of expertise.

PACE will immediately elevate access to quality care, advance best practices, standardize delivery of care and reduce chronic steroid use. Together, the centres of excellence can improve patient outcomes and standardize delivery of care for Canadians living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

There are five major centres involved in this network, and each is taking on leadership in different areas to improve care.
