Overview

The Liver Update 2018, will update health care providers on the latest in research and clinical trials presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) meeting in San Francisco in November 2018.  Expert faculty will summarize select abstracts and presentations and condense them in a format that will be suitable to a broad audience including those not focused on treating liver diseases. A state-of-the art lecture will cover the latest and overarching perspective that will be delivered by a local and national expert. This update is a great opportunity for those who do not typically attend the liver meeting or may not have focused on certain aspects of it but want to stay up-to-date on the most clinically important research.

This course is for gastroenterologists, hepatologists, surgeons, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and nurses.
