Focus IN CD presented at the UEG conference in Barcelona

Two oral abstract presentations of the Focus IN CD project were given in the abstract session "Enteropathies - from bench to bedside".

Dr. Petra Rižnik from the University Hospital of Maribor presented data from our online surveys, particularly on the impact of the clinical presentation of coeliac disease on diagnostic delays in children in central Europe. She won the prize for the best abstract presentation of this session.

The second presentation was given by Dr. Katharina Werkstetter from Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital, she presented the Online Tools of Focus IN CD, comprising the online course for patients, for health care professionals as well as the Web-App to simplify the use of the new diagnostic pediatric algorithm. In addition, Tunde Koltai from the Hungarian Coeliac Disease Association advertised the Online Tools also at the Exhibition Booth of AOECS.

Dr. Petra Rižnik also presented a poster on "The Influence of Diagnostic Delays on Growth with Children with Coeliac Disease in Central Europe".  Her presentation was awarded with “Best abstract presentation price.”

Again, all presentations resulted in very positive feedback from the audience.
