Patient Involvement in Research Day 2020

On Saturday 17th October 2020, researchers and patients from across the UK took part in Crohn's & Colitis UK's first virtual patient and public involvement in research day!

Six exciting inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research projects were presented and discussed live, with people also exploring additional interactive 'virtual posters' online. Importantly, participants had the opportunity to engage directly with researchers to respond to their polls and, in turn, ask them their own questions about research.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for a very interesting day! I really liked that it covered so many different aspects of IBD. It’s reassuring for all there are so many health researchers interested in investigating areas that may help improve outcomes.

Regardless of the pandemic, I think the virtual format allows those with IBD who find travelling difficult to still directly take part.
