What is IBDclinic.org.au?

IBDclinic.org.au is an internet-based free service for individuals with IBD. IBDclinic.org.au has two primary goals: (1) provide information about IBD; and (2) provide an effective online psychological treatment service for anxiety and/or depression associated with IBD.

IBDclinic.org.au comprises 2 main areas:

  • Information: High quality information and resources are provided to enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding IBD, including its common symptoms, procedures used in diagnosis, and known strategies for reducing distress associated with IBD.
  • Treatment program: A comprehensive and effective treatment program for treating anxiety and/or depression that can be associated with IBD. The self-help programs are for individuals with mild symptoms and are offered free of charge.

Your use of this service and feedback is valuable. Your participation in the assessment and treatment programs will also help shape this service to better support individuals with IBD.

If you would like to volunteer to participate in other ongoing IBS-based research activities at Swinburne University, please feel free to contact us at: IBDclinic@ibdclinic.org.au

On behalf of the entire team here at IBDclinic.org.au, I wish you every success and hope you will find the information and psychological treatment programs helpful!

I wish to thank the Broad Medical Research Program of The Broad Foundation based in the United States of America for their patience and support and initial funding of IBDclinic.org.
