End Stage Liver Disease Training Program and Treatment Update 2014
The number of patients with ESLD in the US is expected to continue to grow through 2020, largely due to the burden of chronic viral hepatitis and fatty liver disease which already exists in our population. As they age, a larger number of patients will develop decompensation events such as bleeding from esophageal varices, hepatic encephalopathy, hepatocellular carcinoma, ascites, hyponatremia and renal failure. The expected increase in number of ESLD patients will create more demand for health care providers who are able to care for the growing population, both in and out of the hospital. As such, this cutting edge, three quarter day course will teach diagnosis and management of common complications seen in patients with ESLD. After attending this educational program, the attendee will be able to recognize the treatable complications quickly and use the latest therapies in a reasonable fashion. Learning will concentrate on the areas which are evidence-based or literature-based; including portosystemic encephalopathy, ascites, hyponatremia, hepatocellular carcinoma screening and treatment, hepatorenal syndrome and bleeding due to portal hypertension.
