New survey on the indirect costs of IBD. The aim of the study is to assess the influence of IBD on the patients productivity at work and relevant costs for society.

If you are 18 years old or older and suffer from an inflammatory bowel disease we would like to invite you to take part in a survey concerning indirect costs of IBD.

The survey is carried out by the Institute of Public Health, Jagiellonian University Collegium Medicum (Poland) in cooperation with patient associations from European countries under the joint patronage of the European Federation of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA).

Eleven language versions are available: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, English, Estonian,  French, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian and Spanish. The survey is open for participants from all European countries (www.ibdcosts.eu).

Answers to questions included in the questionnaire are very important for the assessment of nonmedical costs of inflammatory bowel diseases in Europe. The aim of the study is to assess the influence of inflammatory bowel diseases on the patients productivity at work and relevant costs for the society.

Participation in the study is voluntary and fully anonymous. Results will be available for EFCCA members and published in research journals.
