E-health empowers patients with ulcerative colitis: a randomised controlled trial of the web-guided 'Constant-care' approach
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The natural history of ulcerative colitis requires continuous monitoring of medical treatment via frequent outpatient visits. The European health authorities' focus on e-health is increasing. Lack of easy access to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) clinics, patients' education and understanding of the importance of early treatment at relapse is leading to poor compliance. To overcome these limitations a randomised control trial 'Constant-care' was undertaken in Denmark and Ireland.
