ECCO-EFCCA Patient Guidelines

More information
Article type: 

The highly anticipated translations of the ECCO-EFCCA Patient Guidelines have been completed and will be officially  launched in February 2017 at the 12th Congress of ECCO in Barcelona. The ECCO Guidelines on UC and CD are considered the reference for practice by a majority of the specialist IBD units in Europe. The translations of these guidelines from medical to lay language offers patients and physicians a common background of knowledge that may facilitate dialogue, understanding and common involvement in decision making.

The review process has been a collaboration between patient representatives and physician representatives from each country, conducted with the vision of enhancing the translations on the basis of the feedback received. It has been a challenging yet rewarding task for all those involved.

ECCO and EFCCA have set up the website publications in order to make the respective downloads available in exchange for registration of the user’s email address, which will allow later follow-up. Pleaes click on the relevant country:
