Day 2 - Diagnosis and management of coeliac disease; time for reflection

This conference focused on the research that supports or directly underpins the Charity's strategic aims around diagnosis and management of coeliac disease. There was plenty of opportunity for discussion during each of the panel sessions and it is hoped that the report on the conference proceedings will be used to aid the development of public policies in support of patients with coeliac disease.
