Public Health SIG: Population Health Management of Cirrhosis
Recorded On: 11/11/2016
This program is intended to explore current and novel health care delivery approaches and strategies for managing populations affected by cirrhosis and portal hypertension. In contrast to disease-based symposium focused on novel diagnostic and treatment approaches, this program intends to focus on current and evolving approaches inspired by delivery system reform to ensure that high quality, patient-centered, and resource efficien medical care is delivered to large segments of patients with advanced liver disease. The emphasis of this program is on clinical knowledge.
