Present the aims, methodology, conduct, results, and future benefits from the Rome Foundation Global Epidemiology Study (RFGS) of the Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI)
Present and discuss the DGBI by anatomic region (Esophageal, Gastroduodenal, Bowel, and Anorectal) in terms of: • Results from the RFGS for that region • Provide a cased based approach using the Multidimensional Clinical Profile (MDCP) to address the main regional disorders
Implications of the study: • To address: Rome IV vs. Rome III for IBS, overlapping DGBI, post-infection IBS and Functional Dyspepsia, abdominal bloating/distension, diet and nutrition, psychosocial factors, and healthcare utilization • Regional and cross-cultural differences in DGBI
Future directions and the Rome V process • What are the implications of the RFGS for Rome V? • How can researchers conduct studies using the RFGS database?

The Rome Foundation is an independent not for profit 501(c) 3 organization that provides support for activities designed to create scientific data and educational information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI). Our mission is to improve the lives of people with DGBI.
Over the last 20 years, the Rome organization has sought to legitimize and update our knowledge of the DGBIs. This has been accomplished by bringing together scientists and clinicians from around the world to classify and critically appraise the science of gastrointestinal function and dysfunction. This knowledge permits clinical scientists to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice.
