This program is intended for endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists nurses, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with or at risk for NASH.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate risk and apply appropriate methodology to characterize NAFLD and diagnose NASH in individual patients
- Apply best practices in the management of patients with NAFLD based on evolving data on lifestyle modification and medical treatment
- Critically evaluate data on emerging therapies for NASH, including evidence of reversal of fibrosis, risks and benefits, and their potential utility in the treatment of patients with NASH
- Demonstrate an understanding of clinical trial design and evaluation of endpoints in the setting of NAFLD/NASH
