Supporting the development of mobile apps for patients and physicians

  • How patients can help prevent colon cancer
  • Follow-up colonoscopy calculator based on risk factors
  • Current treatment algorithms
  • Calendar of gastroenterology congresses and conferences

Working with research groups

We support several national groups:

  • The Société Française d’Endoscopie Digestive (SFED)
  • The Associazione Italiana Gastroenterologi & Endoscopisti Digestive Ospedalieri (AIGO) and Societa Italiana Endoscopia Digestiva (SIED) study group
  • Stiftung Lebensblicke in Germany
  • La Fundación Española del Aparato Digestivo (FEAD)

We provide a range of patient support

We know that colonoscopies can be daunting, but patients have a fundamental role in determining the quality of their procedure

Norgine helps provide a range of support to help patients fully understand and prepare for their colonoscopy, alleviating their concerns, for example:

Step-by-step booklets on what to expect, how to take their bowel preparation and what to eat

An easy to follow app to guide patients through preparing for their colonoscopy

Educational video animation for patients

Champions colorectal health awareness

We know that a timely, successful colonoscopy is fundamental to the early detection, monitoring and management of bowel-related diseases

We work with many European and national organisations to promote awareness of colorectal health and increase uptake of colonoscopies
