27/04/18 - BLNA Nurse Meeting, Austin Court, Birmingham - REGISTER NOW

The BLNA is delighted to announce its forthcoming April meeting – Innovations in caring for people with or at risk of liver disease

The meeting will be held at Austin Court in Birmingham on Friday 27th April 2018. The programme reflects innovations in care and the dynamic nature of liver nursing. Topic areas will include alcohol, hepatitis C and primary biliary cholangitis. We have invited a service user to discuss the lived experience of liver disease, person focussed sessions are always well received by offering nurses insight and helping to illuminate the care we give to people with liver disease. Acute on chronic liver failure will be complemented by the “Liver Diseases in Bite Size Pieces” session which will focus on features of decompensated cirrhosis. The UK government is currently out to consultation to change the way that organ donation works in England; we will debate the pros and cons of the two different systems. In 2018 there will be a number of changes to the way that donor livers are allocated and we will investigate what effect this might have for liver transplant recipients. As technology becomes a more integral part of our work, we will be looking at a liver app that supports assessment and diagnosis of liver conditions.

Registration is now open and programme topics* covered include:

Acute on Chronic Liver Disease
Hepatitis C
Features of decompensated cirrhosis
Liver Apps
National allocation of donor livers
Primary Biliary Cholangitis
Lived experience of liver disease
Organ donation debate
* subject to change
