Patient Involvement in Research Day 2020

Researchers and patients from across the UK are invited to take part in Crohn's & Colitis UK's first virtual patient and public involvement in research day!

Six exciting inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research projects will be presented 10am - 2pm on Saturday 17th October 2020 over the communication platform Zoom, with additional interactive content available online. Importantly, you will be able to engage directly with researchers to respond to their polls and, in turn, ask them your questions about their work.

It felt empowering for the professionals to be listening to my thoughts and opinions on my care, and to know they would act on the feedback I gave. Having an incurable illness can be daunting, so knowing there are so many people trying to help us live better lives was emotional and very rewarding to be part of.
