Identifying differences and treatments between hepatitis B and hepatitis C, understanding how to manage cirrhosis and addressing abnormal liver functions are critical to any GI practice. With the field of gastroenterology’s growing reliance on advance practice providers (APPs), practices are looking to them to provide first-order assessments and to determine initial treatments for patients with liver-related ailments.

AGA’s Principles of GI for the NP and PA’s session on liver disease will provide APPs with tools to empower them to deliver the right prognoses and care strategies. Principles of GI, Aug. 9-11, 2019, in Chicago, is taught by clinical leaders from AGA and leading APPs and designed to take APPs to the next level of their growth as GI care practitioners. Register by July 31 and save $100. July 19 is the deadline to secure discounted hotel rates.

The liver disease session on Aug. 10 will guide attendees on:

    • How to evaluate abnormal liver function tests.
    • Understanding the latest developments on hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
    • How to manage patients suffering from cirrhosis.
    • How to evaluate and manage liver lesions and hepatocellular cancer.
