Recently, ESPEN published its first “Practical guideline” on IBD and now ESPEN launched this guideline as an app version for smartphones and tablets. The app is the first ESPEN guideline app and is available for download for iOS and Android. A web-based version will follow soon. The ESPEN Guideline App and the Web-version are dedicated to all professionals in clinical practice (physicians, nurses, dieticians, nutritionists, etc.) who encounter questions regarding the use of medical nutrition or nutritional support in their clinical everyday life. The IBD guideline is the beginning of a new form of guideline dissemination, an initiative supported by grants from ESPEN and the United European Gastroenterology (UEG). Apps on clinical nutrition in cancer disease, chronic intestinal failure, liver disease, and surgery will be released shortly. (Click here for more info)
