The purpose of this workshop is to emphasise holistic care and importance of quality of life for IC patients using bio-psycho-social model because of no curative treatment until now. In biological aspect, we focus on phenotyping about comorbid syndrome and ulcer. In psychological aspect, we recognise the assessment of somatic symptoms. In social practice, we understand the patient group support and introduce E-health system supporting health education and providing for patient self-management. Interactive forum highlight the gap between patient’s preference and physician’s judgement. We invite IC patients and experts from different country to have a discussion with attenders.
