ECCO Educational Workshops

The primary goal of ECCO Educational Workshops is to harmonise IBD practices within ECCO Country Members by presenting the practical use of the ECCO Guidelines on Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Additionally, the Workshops provide continuous medical education with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of care for patients with IBD. ECCO Educational Workshops are aimed at individuals who are interested in IBD and provide an ideal opportunity to network whilst receiving an update on the latest ECCO Guidelines by top gastroenterologists in Europe.

IBD Nurse Education programme

ECCO believes it is essential to develop a comprehensive, practical education programme for IBD Nurses, which aims to increase the number of IBD Nurses and enhances their role. Various discussions led by and with ECCO nurses have confirmed this need. In line with these discussions ECCO has launched a brand new IBD Nurse Education Programme.  The 1st cycle of the programme took place in Italy in 2018/2019. The 2nd cycle of the IBD Nurse Education Programme will take place in Budapest, Hungary in 2022/2023. The first F2F Meeting is scheduled for September 30- Oct 1, 2022.

The Y-ECCO Mentorship Forum is about questioning, challenging, guiding and encouraging young doctors to develop skills and take steps to become the professionals they want to be.
