CCFA Partners:   Internet-based registry of patient reported disease outcomes

CCFA Partners Kids & Teens:

CCFA Partners Kids & Teens, is a parallel study of childhood IBD. Nearly one fourth of individuals with IBD are diagnosed during the childhood or teenage years. Special consideration must be given to pediatric IBD patients who are undergoing rapid physical and mental growth and development. The effects of the disease and treatment in this population need to be better understood.

The goal of CCFA Partners Kids & Teens is to create a long-term community of patients who are engaged in research. This study, launched in August 2013, will focus on aspects of IBD that are most important to patients and their parents, including health behaviors, disease symptoms, and quality of life. The entire study takes place over the internet.
