Non-alcoholic fatty liver, alcoholic liver disease, viral hepatitis, drug-induced liver injury and incidental liver masses are commonly encountered in the outpatient setting. This course will focus on the diagnosis of these chronic liver diseases, how they can be managed in their medical home and when referral to a specialist is recommended. Integrating the Choosing Wisely recommendations for Hepatology, this course will focus on the appropriate investigations of abnormal liver tests, elevated ferritin, benign liver tumours, and will “demystify” the interpretation of hepatitis B serology.
At the end of this course, learners will be equipped to:
- identify and manage common presentations of liver disease in the community
- list the Choosing Wisely recommendations that apply to Hepatology
