Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is now a major part of French gastroenterologist clinical practice. Their incidence is increasing and their management remains complex. IBD also has a major impact on the quality of life of patients and a very important cost for society especially since the use of biologics. In 2016, the GETAID (Groupe d’Etudes Thérapeutiques des Affections Inflammatoires du Tube Digestif) conducted a national survey in its affiliated centers in order to analyze the organization of IBD patients care and to evaluate over a week the IBD population followed in 41 French hospitals. The first part of the survey showed that all the centers have dedicated organization for IBD patients, but with a lack of multidisciplinarity. A majority of centers had research activities. On the other hand, patient education was insufficiently represented. There was a general need for IBD research coordination and IBD nurses to improve the management of IBD patients. The second part of the survey identified 3 124 hospital visits of IBD patients in one week in France. The majority of patients were seen in the outpatient clinic. The mean age of IBD patients was 42 years-old and numerous patients were recently diagnosed with IBD. Half of the patients were treated with anti-TNF. This large nationwide survey highlighted the future challenges regarding the management of IBD patients (older patients, increased number of diagnosis, outpatient care) and to identify areas for improvement (IBD nurses, education).
