Research Conference 2021 - Coeliac disease; beyond 2020, what lies ahead?

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on diagnosis and management of coeliac disease and raised many questions around health and wellbeing for people with coeliac disease. 2020 saw the introduction of a no-biopsy diagnosis pathway for adults and dietetic clinics had to rapidly transition to a digital format.
