This study day covers the impact of obesity, alcohol and viral blood borne infections on liver health and look at the importance of lifestyle and behaviour change in liver care. Come along and learn how you can be more effective delivering liver care in your practice.
Quick Overview of the Day
To begin we set the growing national and individual impact of liver disease in perspective; this is a national crisis so action is required. We next move on to the liver and its functions, laying the foundation for understanding the process for monitoring liver disease and the potential disastrous consequences of liver disease. The three main ways to damage your liver, which are alcohol, virus and obesity are then explained and you will even get a guest appearance of a “virus” to aid the memory on interpreting the result.
