Welcome to the ECCO e-Guide

The ECCO e-Guide is a freely-accessible online platform for Healthcare Professionals in IBD, which aims to visualise the ECCO Guidelines as algorithms based primarily on the main UC and CD Guidelines of ECCO. The updating process of the e-Guide is therefore also bound to the updating cycles of the major ECCO Guidelines.

It is a key policy of ECCO to ensure that guidance given by the ECCO e-Guide is based on evidence and validated processes – which are properly referenced. Each piece of information on the e-Guide is coming from published papers (official ECCO Papers with a Consensus procedure, SmPC approved by regulatory authorities and referenced articles of the calculators, scores and indices) but not all published papers of ECCO will be included in the e-Guide.

For further resources, the e-CCO Learning platform offers a broad inventory of up-to-date educational material (with interactive e-Courses, multimedia material and an extensive e-Library including Congress presentations, webcasts and abstracts). The IBD Curriculum links direct you to the e-Learning platform where ECCO Members benefit from unrestricted access to educational content. Become an ECCO member now!
