The ECCO e-Guide is an expanding collection of algorithms based on the ECCO guidelines. These algorithms were developed during 2013-2014 on behalf of ECCO (the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation) by Marcus Harbord, with assistance from Ailsa Hart, Siew Ng, and Makis Mantzaris; Y-ECCO members Tiago Nunes, Monica Cesarini, Joana Torres and Elisabeth Schnoy; and members of ECCO’s GuiCom and EduCom. In 2016 the algorithms were expanded to include all the published ECCO guidelines (or their current update).
The e-Guide is managed by the Guidelines Committee (GuiCom). The content is based on the most recent published ECCO guidelines and has been ratified by ECCO. The content will be updated in conjunction with publication of new ECCO statements and new guidelines and guideline updates. It will not be updated by the publication of ECCO topical reviews.
The e-Guide platform was developed by Sociable Data, who also provide ongoing support for the e-Guide via an educational grant of software license.
The images and videos in the resources section were provided by the e-Guide contributors; José Assunção Gonçalves, Sílvia Batalha; clinicians at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, UK, in particular Priya Narayanan, Nebil Behar, Mahmood Wahed and Paris Tekkis; Lyndon Da Cruz; and Chris Fraser.
