INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE, NZ PATIENT JOURNEY
Atlantis Healthcare were asked by Janssen-Cilag (a pharmaceutical company) to talk to people living with IBD about their experiences.
Atlantis Healthcare talked to people living with IBD and the people who care for them – carers; gastroenterologists; nurses; a surgeon; a dietitian; and people from Crohn’s and Colitis New Zealand and the Ostomy Society
