In My Shoes: 24 Hours with Crohn’s or Colitis
In My Shoes is back! The immersive app that allows anyone - friends, family, colleagues, healthcare professionals and policy makers - to experience what it's like to live with Crohn's or Colitis for 24 hours is available to download. We've also created a brand new set of free resources to help healthcare professionals and anyone living with Crohn's or Colitis make the most of using and recommending the app.
The In My Shoes app allows anyone to step into the life of someone living with Crohn’s or Colitis for a day, experiencing a series of tasks and choices which prompt the user to think about how the conditions can impact daily life. From depleting energy levels to managing pain, from rushing to the toilet to juggling work and a social life, the app helps the user to experience first-hand how these conditions can affect every part of the body, and every aspect of life.
We've created a new range of resources to help you make the most of the app. To view your In My Shoes resources, click the relevant link below.
In My Shoes is a fantastic app that can really help people with Crohn’s or Colitis start conversations with their loved ones about how these conditions impact upon daily life. It’s our ambition that as many healthcare professionals, working within and alongside IBD Services, as possible find out more about the app, try it out for themselves and recommend it to their patients.
