CURICT - Information and Communication Technologies Use in patients with Chronic Spontaneous and Chronic inducible Urticaria (CURICOT, chronic urticaria – patient use of information and communication technologies)

    New strategies to improve clinical outcomes, adherence and encourage communication between health-care providers and patients are nowadays being explored, giving rise to a heightened interest in the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for medical purposes. CURICT aims to assess the frequency and preference of ICTs use in patients with chronic spontaneous and chronic inducible urticaria. 

    Study type: Questionnaire

    The study results will be presented at an international congress (preferably at the EADV or EAACI) and they will be submitted for publication, e.g. in ALLERGY. To become a coauthor, you need to include at least 10 patients to the study and contribute to the interpretation of the results and the development of the manuscript. The sequence of coauthors, in authors who contributed equally to data interpretation and manuscript development will be based on the number of patients included. 

    Deadline: A30.06.2019
