ECCO Educational Workshops - objectives, programme and facts
The primary goal is harmonising IBD practices within ECCO Country Members by spreading the ECCO Guidelines on Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, and to provide continuous medical education with the ultimate aim to improve the quality of care for patients with IBD.
The programme of the workshop is created around clinical cases illustrated by a set of ECCO Statements with intention to be as educational and proactive as possible. This will allow participants to take active part in the discussions. The programme consists of cases drawn from a common slide pool to be used by ECCO and local lecturers. This in particular allows transferring the same messages at each workshop and maintaining a high level of quality at each individual workshop.
ECCO Educational Workshops are aimed at individuals who are interested in IBD and can be seen as an ideal opportunity to network and receive an update on the latest ECCO Guidelines by top gastroenterologists in Europe!
