ECCO EFCCA Patient Guidelines

ECCO-EFCCA Patient Guidelines

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.
