TPUK held the 5th annual Tillotts LOGIC IBD STARS event – An education and recognition event for UK IBD nurses

On Friday 8th July, Tillotts Pharma UK welcomed over 70 delegates to the Tillotts LOGIC IBD STARS event, the fifth Education Day and Recognition Evening for IBD nurses in the UK. The one-day face-to-face event was held near Bristol and this was the first time the event was held under the new rebranded name – “Tillotts LOGIC IBD STARS – Support Training and Recognising Success”.

​​​​​​​The 2022 event was the largest yet and provided a valuable networking opportunity for the IBD nurse community and the chance for Tillotts representatives to meet new and existing customers face-to-face. The event was split into an Education Day, which included plenary presentations, panel discussions and practical workshops and the Recognition Evening, which focused on acknowledging and celebrating the achievements of IBD nurses.


The Education Day – Developed alongside a steering committee of experts in IBD

The Education Day agenda was packed full of inspiring speakers, panel discussions and two interactive workshops. The sessions were focused on the following themes:

  • Spotlight on IBD nursing
  • Working together: Building bridges
  • Communication is key
  • Shared decision making to improve patient outcomes
  • IBD management: What’s in the pipeline?

​​​​The interactive and practical education programme is developed by a steering committee of experts in IBD and is designed to support IBD nurse education, recognise excellence in improving patient care, share best practice, and encourage networking.

The Recognition Evening – Recognising excellence in improving IBD patient care

The Recognition Evening celebrated IBD nurses achievements through the Richard Driscoll award, an award for IBD nurses who have developed an innovative project to improve patient care. Nurses submitted their project prior to the event and three finalists were selected, the finalists’ projects were showcased during the evening with a dedicated poster presentation and a video featuring each project.

The Richard Driscoll Award finalists posters and the recipients video will be available on the Tillotts LOGIC website –

The Recognition Evening also featured a new award for 2022, the Rising Stars Award to recognise inspiring newly qualified and less experienced IBD colleagues’ achievements in improving IBD patient care. Nurses nominated their colleagues for this award and all nominations were showcased during the evening.
