Crohn’s & Colitis UK are pleased to offer Health Care Professionals a free training programme focusing on the delivery and management of hospital-based advice line services for people living with Crohn’s or Colitis.
We will be offering two further dates in 2024 in March and June. Further information below.
Aims of the Programme:
To provide definition and clarity of what an advice line service, (also referred to as a help/flare/support line), is and is not!
To explore professional boundary setting, signposting, service development, and working effectively with the wider IBD team at your service.
Understand what resilience is and consider how to build resilience into service delivery.
Increase awareness of and utilisation of available support services to promote patient self-management.
The Advice Line Training will be delivered virtually using Microsoft Teams over a full day, with surveys both prior to and after the training session. Resources and references will be available to those that have completed the Advice Line Training.
The Advice Line Training has been co-produced by IBD Nurse Specialists, IBD patients, and the Helpline team from Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
The training is provided free of charge, but places are limited for each session. We recommend registering for the session as soon as possible!
Dates and how to apply:
For 2024, we will be holding Advice Line Training on the following dates:
Tuesday 5 March - APPLICATIONS CLOSED. PLACES ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED.
Tuesday 25 June
Please note - if you are offered a place on the advice line training, we suggest you take the day away from the clinic as you will get the most benefit from being present for the full session.

Listening and talking through your situation.
Helping you to find support from others in the Crohn’s and Colitis community.
