The ESCP 2019 multicentre, pan-European audit will focus on the management of patients with acute severe ulcerative colitis. The audit will be delivered by a collaboration between colorectal surgeons and gastroenterologists.

The objective of the audit will be to explore variabilities in the medical and surgical management of acute severe ulcerative colitis and to determine its apparent impact on patient-level outcomes. Secondarily, the parameters that predict which patients may benefit from medical salvage therapy and who are likely to need colectomy will be assessed.

The data obtained about areas of variability in provision or practice, and how this may impact upon outcomes, will allow international benchmarking to improve the standard of care provided to this patient group, as well as generating hypotheses and inform future randomised research.

We welcome participants from any centre in the world. Each site can have up to eight investigators, including consultants and trainees. In each team, at least one team member will need to be a member of the ESCP.

It is not too late to get involved in MASC - please register your team here to take part.
