Abstract

Mukherjee, S., Beresford, B., Sebastian, S. and Atkin, K. (2015) Living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: The experiences of adults of South Asian origin, Social Policy Research Unit, University of York, York.

Globally IBD is most prevalent in Europe and North America. In recent years there has been an increase in incidence of IBD in people of South Asian origin living in these countries. The aim of this research was to describe what living with IBD is like for South Asian adults living in the UK, and to understand whether ethnicity impacts on this experience and, if so, how. The research was commissioned by Crohn's and Colitis UK as part of their 'Living with IBD' research programme.
