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.

It is important that pharmacy professionals in primary care know how to appropriately manage these patients and advise them with regards their medications.
