Call for 2023 ECCO Educational Workshop Destinations

The primary goal of the Educational Workshops organised by the ECCO Education Committee 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. The programme of the one-day workshop is created around clinical cases, with the intention of ensuring that the workshop is as educational and interactive as possible and that participants can take an active part in the discussions.

So far, 69 Educational Workshops have been organised, starting in 2007.
