Call for input for important research on improving access to IBD care.

As part of the Promoting Access and Care through Centres of Excellence (PACE) initiative, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada will be conducting a series of 90-minute virtual focus groups with Canadians across the country, giving you the opportunity to share your opinions and experiences related to your IBD care. The focus groups will be scheduled during August and September. All focus group participants will receive a cash honorarium for participating.
