Description

Course Overview
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 which already exists in our population. As they age, a larger number of patients will develop decompensation events such as variceal bleeding, hepatic encephalopathy, hepatocellular carcinoma, hyponatremia and renal failure. This increase in ESLD patients will create an increasing 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, half-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, hyponatremia, hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatorenal syndrome and bleeding due to portal hypertension
