You are invited to participate in a research study for veterans with IBD. The goal of this research study is to understand the healthcare needs of veterans with inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This survey is being conducted by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and is supported through funding from Takeda and UCB.

To participate in this survey, you must meet the following criteria: (1) be a veteran of the United States military and (2) have a diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (which includes Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or IBD-unclassified). Participation in this study is voluntary. The estimated time needed to complete this survey is 20 minutes. The survey includes questions about your experiences as a veteran with the disease. Participation in this survey will help us learn what education and support resources veterans may need as they manage their disease within the VA healthcare system.

There are no known risks associated with this survey and the information you will share with us if you participate in this survey will be kept completely confidential. survey findings will only be exported in summary form.
