EFCCA is involved in an exciting project aimed at helping people to ‘live well’ with IBD. We are developing a series of animation videos that will equip people with practical advice and relevant information and hopefully will bring about positive changes to the way they cope with their disease.
The animations are aimed at a diverse patient population and have been elaborated by a group of IBD patients, animation experts, EFCCA and Janssen. We hope that the animations provide a quick and easy medium to cover multiple topics and involve people at different ages and life-stages. Altogether we will be developing three animated videos to provide positive, practical advice to people living with IBD and to help overcome some of the key issues they face.
The content of the videos reflect the views and perspectives of real people with IBD in real life scenarios and the stories are positive and upbeat aimed at giving people confidence that they can live well with IBD.For many people, diagnosis with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be an overwhelming and confusing time. Not just for the person with the condition, but also for those who are close to them.
Below you have the link to the first animation video “My IBD Journey: life after IBD diagnosis”. It is based on the real-life experiences of people with IBD and provides advice and suggested positive steps people can take as they look to the future. Being able to move forward following a diagnosis is important. People need to have the confidence to know that they can live well with their condition.

This video has been produced by Janssen, in collaboration with the European Federation of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA).
The second video animation is currently being prepared and will be launched during the UEG WEEK 2018 Congress.
