This program is designed to address the professional practice gaps in all six competencies including patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice. This program will provide updated information on the new guidelines and recommendations based on the most current research presented at the national American Association for the Study of Liver Disease Meeting, November 7-8, 2014 in Boston, MA, and will go a long way towards improving patient outcomes.
Advances are occurring at a rapid pace in the treatment of liver diseases. These advances include new guidelines and recommendations for the treatment of viral hepatitis and hepatocellular cancer. It is important for care providers to be made aware of these advances to provide quality, ethical and cost-effective care of patients with liver disease.
