ClinCom Activities in Vienna 2020
The mission of the Clinical Research Committee of ECCO (ClinCom) is to improve the quality of IBD clinical studies in Europe through education. With this purpose in mind, ClinCom is organising several sessions during the upcoming ECCO Congress 2020 in Vienna, targeting clinicians, nurses and industry.
On the Wednesday of the Congress, we are organising the 5th Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry. The aim of this course is to provide a state of the art introduction to IBD for both corporate and non-corporate members. In the first session we will highlight the impact of IBD for the patient and the physician. Subsequently, the natural history and overall management of IBD will be discussed, covering the causes of IBD, diagnostic and monitoring procedures, extra-intestinal manifestations and risk assessment.
