About the Event
Our SPS Clinical Fellow, Kieran Reynolds, who is a liver specialist by background, is in conversation with Helen Boothman and Poonam Jethwa. They discuss how to appropriately manage your patients with chronic liver disease, what medicines they should avoid, ways to ensure that their liver disease is appropriately monitored and when to refer for specialist management.
Why is it important
The incidence of chronic liver disease is increasing.
It is important that pharmacy professionals in primary care know how to appropriately manage these patients and advise them with regards their medications.
What you will learn
At the end of this “on the couch” conversation you should:
- appreciate that the incidence of liver disease is increasing and some of the reasons why
- list some of the complications of chronic liver disease and the medicines used to treat them
- summarise which medications to avoid in chronic liver disease
- outline when to refer patients with liver disease for specialist management
