In addition to developing the Rome Criteria for diagnosing Functional GI Disorders (FGIDs), the Rome Foundation appoints working teams that address other complex issues in the field. In choosing team members, the Board has selected senior-level members internationally who are directly involved in and who have published in the topic areas chosen by the Board. The purpose of these working team committees is to develop a summary of the research and literature to date and then offer guidelines or recommendations to help advance future research. The teams would then develop a manuscript to be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Rome IV Committees

Rome IV: The Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders: Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction. Through the work of 6 editors, 117 authors from 23 countries on 18 committees, and our administrative staff, Rome IV provides the culmination of a 5-year process with updates in the criteria with 19 chapters that address the organ-based criteria, basic science, physiology, pharmacology & pharmacokinetics, psychosocial aspects, gender, age, society, culture, and the patient’s perspective, design of treatment trials, and development and validation of the Rome IV diagnostic questionnaire.
