Research opportunity | Well-being, Gut Health & Science: Patient-reported outcomes in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Published by Sahara Fleetwood-Beresford on

We’re thrilled to support Gwo-tzer and the Team at The University of Edinburgh in the latest Edinburgh IBD Science study.

Overall well-being is an important goal in treating and managing Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). A high proportion of people with IBD feel that their well-being continues to be affected, even when bowel symptoms have improved. That’s why this latest study (a 10-minute survey) is being carried out.

Previous studies highlighted that there’s no overall benchmark to measure the burden of IBD on well-being. This study hopes to gather information from as many individuals as possible, to gain an accurate picture of well-being. This should enable better approaches to be developed to study ways to improve overall health in IBD.

Gwo-tzer said: “We are extremely grateful for C3 and all our patients who have taken part in our studies across Scotland. Our goal is to build our research around our patients. This survey exercise is an early first step towards understanding how we can develop our scientific work that encompasses well-being and patient-reported outcomes (what you tell us).”
