Exploring the impact of a diagnosis of ‘dysplasia’ in IBD patients

Researchers at St Mark’s Hospital and Academic Institute are looking for patients to take part in a study looking at patient decision-making when a diagnosis of ‘dysplasia’.

Researchers are looking for adults diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) for 8 years or more, who have had a surveillance colonoscopy to take part in a study and share their experiences on how the condition has affected their lives.

During a surveillance colonoscopy, medical teams look for a change in the bowel wall lining called ‘dysplasia’.

This new study, co-funded by GutsUK and the Dr Falk Award, seeks to find out what patients know about this condition and how best medical teams can communicate information about ‘dysplasia’ to patients.

The study involves completing a questionnaire. You can also have the option of taking part in an interview.
