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. 

    Congratulations to Ivan Cherrez Ojeda, Marcus Maurer and the UCARE physicians on successfully completing the UCARE Project CURICT. 

    The aim of CURICT was to assess the frequency and preference of Internet Communication Technologies (ICTs).  The results show that almost all patients with chronic spontaneous and chronic (CSU) and inducible urticaria have access to ICTs and more the majority sees the need for an app to monitor and control their disease activity.

    In this episode, our host is joined by Professor Kiran Godse who shares his experiences of treating CSU in India. Professor Godse provides unmissable insights into the practicalities of CSU care, including economic considerations, as well as his plans to increase the UCARE network’s presence in India and facilitate wider dissemination of educational resources.
