A GUIDE FOR PATIENTS WITH ULCERATIVE COLITIS
This guide enables patients with ulcerative colitis to record the details of your health on the same points-system as your medical team is likely to use and is called “How to complete your own Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index
The idea is that, before appointments, you can fill it in with the details about your symptoms that the medical team are likely to ask about. Or, if you think that your colitis is flaring up, you could fill it in at home to verify this and then, if you need to seek medical help, you have got the information that the medical team will need to be able to take care of you. Our thanks go to Dr Russell Walmsley of North Shore Hospital for his work on this.
