The overarching aim of ECCO is to improve the care of patients with IBD in all its aspects through international guidelines for practice, education, research and collaboration in the area of IBD. For several years, ECCO has been exploring ways to increase nurse education opportunities throughout Europe. In addition to the three nursing Educational Activities that are offered at the ECCO Congress each year, ECCO will start a brand new IBD Nurse Education Programme in 2018. This programme is being developed collaboratively by N-ECCO and the ECCO Education Committee.

The ECCO IBD Nurse Education Programme was introduced in 2018. Prior to embarking on the development of the programme, N-ECCO undertook a survey regarding the IBD nurse role in 2014 and found very large variation across Europe, with the role still being in its infancy in some countries. The level of education also varied. A scoping exercise was done to see whether there was a need for an educational programme. A total of 140 responses were obtained from a mix of clinical IBD nurses, nurses who reported that they cared for patients with IBD but whose role was not specifically IBD care, and research nurses. There was overwhelming agreement on the need for this type of programme and over 60% said that they had no accredited IBD course available to them. In all countries the largest provider of IBD training was the pharmaceutical companies.
