Liver Disease in Primary Care Practice (In-Person)
October 25, 2019 @ 8:35 am - 2:45 pm
Please join us on October 25, 2019 at Senator Inn & Spa in Augusta, Maine for a CME program designed for providers in the primary care setting. As the burden of liver disease rises in the United States, it is essential to establish a collaborative approach between primary care providers and specialty care. This conference, Liver Disease in Primary Care Practice, seeks to address patient identification, assessment, management, and referral in the primary care setting. Rates of liver disease and cirrhosis are increasing, particularly regarding viral hepatitis, liver cancer, and NAFLD/NASH. PCPs play a key role in early identification of risk factors, patient diagnosis, and management of cirrhotic complications as they represent the front-line in patient care. This conference will examine monitoring and prevention already common in the primary care practice (LFTs and viral hepatitis vaccinations), delve into the importance of identifying patients with risk factors for NAFLD/NASH and liver lesions, discuss cirrhosis management, and when to engage specialist care. The goal is that by bringing together the professionals involved in the care of these patients, we can stimulate collaboration that will lead to improved care for those in need.
