CMHC Masterclass: Addressing the NAFLD / NASH Epidemic: Advances in Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Management
January 8-9, 2021 | Live Online | Eastern Time
US-based healthcare professionals, including endocrinologists, diabetologists, hepatologists, and gastroenterologists as well as registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and dieticians.
The increasing rates of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome in the United States are leading to more cases NAFLD and NASH, which are now being encountered at a greater frequency in clinical practice. NASH can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, including liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)—in fact, HCC caused by NASH is poised to become the leading cause of liver transplants in the US.
Significant advances have been made in the understanding of NAFLD/NASH pathophysiology, risk factors, and disease progression, leading to newer diagnostic approaches and therapeutic targets. However, navigating these developments is no easy feat--for example, there are now more than 150 clinical trials for NASH. Are we getting closer to a treatment? What does the future look like? What can we do now to treat NASH? Who is responsible for screening and diagnosing?
During this engaging CMHC Masterclass meeting, you will have a chance to hear from and interact with experts in the NASH space across all specialties. The meeting is designed to bring forward cutting-edge perspectives to the diagnosis and management of NAFLD/NASH, as well as highlight multi-disciplinary solutions that are ultimately needed to improve outcomes.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Review NAFLD/NASH pathogenesis, disease progression, and risk factors for disease progression in order to improve the identification of NASH
- Define current and emerging approaches and tools to diagnose NAFLD and NASH in clinical practice
- Utilize the current guidelines and recommendations for treatment of NAFLD and NASH in order to optimize patient management
- List emerging NASH pharmacotherapies that aim to target various metabolic, inflammatory, and fibrotic pathways involved in disease progression.
