10 TIPS FOR MAKING IBD WORK FOR YOU AT WORK

10 TIPS FOR MAKING IBD WORK FOR YOU AT WORK

by Sanna Lönnfors, EFCCA Research and Project Coordinator

I recently participated in an online focus group on the topic of Work and IBD, the theme of this year’s World IBD Day. With seven fellow IBD patients, we thought of our job hunts and careers, how IBD has or has not affected our working lives, and what advice we could give to others who have IBD.

COVID-19

Many people especially those with chronic diseases such as IBD and/or who are taking  immunosuppressant medications migth be concerned about the novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). 
Below we have compiled information and guidance for this new virus from ECCO, EMA, IBD sister organisations available in several languages as well as any other relevant links:

EFCCA Symposium

EFCCA organised a symposium on “Digital Health and Data: IBD patients´ view and perspectives”  which took place during the ECCO Congress on 14 February 2020 from 14-15h in Vienna, Austria.

This was an unique event bringing together IBD patients, healthcare providers and other stakeholder in order to start discussions on how digital health and big data can contribute in delivering more personalised care and offering a higher quality of life of patients with IBD.
