When listening to IBD patients, it becomes crystal clear that peer-to-peer contact is incredibly important for them. At Takeda Belgium, we actively strive to contribute to the empowerment of patients by helping to provide relevant evidence-based information regarding day-to-day living with a diseaseand by increasing disease awareness. Therefore, Takeda Belgium organises dedicated IBD patient days together with hospitals and Belgian IBD patient associations..
The objectives for these events are to share correct and relevant information to patients beyond the topic of medication, to facilitate contact between patients and caregivers and promote different forms of interaction with the multidisciplinary medical staff. Another goal is to raise awareness of IBD in order to improve strategies for coping with the taboo subject, and in the end increase patient empowerment.
