We are pleased to announce that four of our My IBD journey video series are now also available in Russian, the fifth video translation will be released for next World IBD Day.
For many people, diagnosis with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be an overwhelming and confusing time. Therefore the content of the videos reflect the views and perspectives of 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.
The results of the survey " Patients’ perceptions of surgery for inflammatory bowel disease" have been published this month (16 July) in the Colorectal Disease Journal.
EFCCA has collaborated in this study which was led by Professor Antonino Spinelli (Humanitas Clinical and Research Center IRCCS, Milan, Italy) and which investigated patients’ perceptions of surgery and the impact on reported outcomes.
