Chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a collective term for conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. IBD also includes microscopic colitis. The diseases primarily affect young people of working age. IBD currently affects 0.5 percent of the population.

The purpose of the National Quality Registry for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (SWIBREG) is to increase knowledge on, and improve care for, inflammatory bowel disease. The registry also provides support for evaluating the effects of various treatments at the local, regional and national levels.

Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
