|Necessary personal requirements of remission, as selected by physicians and nurses|
|Remission requirements (%)||Physicians||Nurses|
|Complete absence of symptoms||63||62|
|Normalized endoscopy score||50||64|
|Improved endoscopy score||45||34|
|Quality of life–normalized||64||62|
|Quality of life–improved||35||38|
|Patient appears content with treatment outcome||72||80|
|No laboratory indicators of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein||69||54|
|Absence of steroids||60||70|
Physicians and nurses were asked, based on their personal definitions, to select the requirements for remission from three paired options (symptoms, endoscopy score, quality of life) and three unpaired options. Respondents could only select one option for each of the paired options, but could also select any or none of the remaining three options.
