UR-CARE Training Centre at ECCO'19

Report on the main feedback and questions from the delegates

 

At the 14th Congress of ECCO, the UR-CARE Team received positive feedback from delegates who tried UR-CARE at the UR-CARE Training Centre. Most delegates were very satisfied with the ease of use of the platform and pleasantly surprised that it was free for physicians. Having a standardised platform among the different centres was also very welcomed. People were impressed by the possibility of creating personalised reports of their patients and of having access to a statistical module with the use of desired filters (a timesaving and major asset compared to Access or Excel databases).

Every two years, Y-ECCO arranges a workshop addressing topics about career and skill development for young researchers and physicians. We thereby aim to address important topics that are not fully covered during the rest of the ECCO Congress. This year the workshop took place for the 11th time, with the overall topic being modern career-enhancing skills.

Dear Y-ECCO Friends,

We hope you are all well and that you enjoyed the ECCO Congress. We certainly did, and we were very pleased to meet many new members at the Y-ECCO Basic Science Workshop as well as to catch up with familiar faces. This year our workshop was over-subscribed, and the room was jam-packed. Our participants consisted of a mixture of basic scientists, clinicians, clinician scientists, nurses, trainees and senior members. We are delighted that our Basic Science Workshop appeals to everyone and caters for many needs.

Kay Greveson former N-ECCO Chair, opened the 13th N-ECCO Network Meeting by welcoming 295 nurses from across the world. This year the course started later, at 10:30, since a joint session with the P-ECCO Educational Course was held from 8:00 to 10:00.  

The first session opened with a presentation by Susanna Jäghult that described a new model of e-health, ”IBD Home”. This tool is an app that is used in Sweden to allow PRO (Patient Reported Outcome) home testing of f-calprotectin. The data goes directly from the app into the national quality registry, Swibreg. After this presentation, the abstract session was held, with oral presentations of the three best nurse abstracts.

The 10th N-ECCO School in Copenhagen was attended by 68 participants from 24 countries, including dietitians and IBD nurses. The 10th N-ECCO School covered various IBD topics of interest to both nurses and dietitians who work with IBD patients. The aim was to enhance participants’ basic knowledge in IBD, enabling them to provide better support to IBD patients throughout Europe and beyond. The N-ECCO School has also come to serve as a great networking opportunity, allowing nurses and dietitians to share their experiences.

This year, during the 14th Congress of ECCO in Copenhagen, the first Guidelines and GRADE Methodology Workshop took place, organised by GuiCom (Guidelines Committee of ECCO). The GRADE (Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluations) methodology represents a systematic approach to making judgements about quality of evidence and strength of recommendations. It has been developed by the GRADE Working Group and is now widely seen as the most effective method of linking evidence-quality evaluations to clinical recommendations. For a year now, several ECCO Members have been working using this methodology to develop the new Crohn’s Disease guidelines.
