This interactive day is suitable for Primary Care Healthcare Professionals including GPs, Practice Nurses and Community Nurses. The day will cover 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.
What is it about?
We set the growing national and individual impact of liver disease in perspective; this is a national crisis so action is required. We 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.
This study was commissioned by the National Clinical Director for Liver Care after he attended a CKD study day and appreciated the informal but practical approach used by the Et al Trainers.
So with our usual style this day is relaxed and interactive using demonstrations, stories but most importantly it is focused on what people working in general practice need to know and then do about livers.
