2020 Webinar: NLRB - How Is It Working So Far?
Recorded On: 02/20/2020
In the Spring of 2019, the National Liver Review Board was put into place. The purpose is to provide greater uniformity in assigning MELD exception scores. We have early data describing the initial outcomes of patients requesting MELD exception scores. There are also some early "lessons learned" in how to improve the process. Dissemination of this data would be helpful for practitioners requesting MELD scores for their patients. We will utilize a live webinar format that will be recorded for on-demand viewing on LiverLearning®.
