ECCO Quality of Care Project: E-QUALITY

The E-QUALITY project is a new initiative of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation to ultimately improve the quality of care of patients living with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). With this project, ECCO goes back to its historic mission: To improve the care of all patients with IBD in all its aspects through international guidelines for practice, education, research and collaboration in the area of IBD.

Two major steps:

1) Current practice vs. ECCO Recommendations: Identifying the gaps
First step - ECCO will focus on identifying the gaps between the quality of standards as defined by ECCO Statements, and the current practice in daily clinical care. The results will be published in the Journal of Crohn’s and Colitis (JCC).

2) Fill the gaps
Second step - having identified the gaps, ECCO will aim at setting up educational tools and/or activities to fill them. This step will be planned further after the completion of the first step.

The overall estimated duration of the project is 3 to 5 years.
