HLTP Course – 5th HEPATOLOGIST in a LIVER TRANSPLANT PROGRAM COURSE

Primary Topics:
Liver tranplantation
Start Date:
Monday, October 24th 2022
End Date:
Tuesday, October 25th 2022
Country:
Rome, Italy
Description & Objectives:

Liver transplantation is accepted as the sole therapy for acute and chronic liver failure from different etiologies and some forms of liver cancer, with excellent results and survival rates comparable to those of the general population of the same age. The increasing success of liver transplantation is due to the constant progress in the fields of pharmacology (introduction of new immunosuppressive drugs and storage grafts solutions), hepatology, and liver surgery, where early diagnosis and the proper management of post-transplant complications are key to achieving satisfactory long-term results. The improvement of knowledge in this area requires continuing education as well as thorough medical, cultural, and ethical preparation by all professionals engaged in liver transplantation.

The main objective of the course is to expand the knowledge related to liver transplantation and to update hepatology trainees and young specialists on the main issues and multidisciplinary approaches, thus fostering interest in the field, increasing the ability to adequately refer potential liver candidates, and advancing clinical skills. The course is organized as a two-day meeting. The program includes a mix of lectures, case discussions and interactive presentations.

The program of the 5th edition of the HLTP course, jointly organized by ELITA and the Italian Association for the Study of the Liver (AISF), will focus mainly on the management of acute and chronic decompensated liver disease, on emerging and challenging indications for liver transplantation, on surgical and innovative techniques implemented to deal with donor shortage, and on the long-term management of liver transplanted patients.

Target Group:

The course is primarily addressed to specialists or residents in gastroenterology, internal medicine, infectious diseases, and surgery.

The HLTP Course will be considered as preparatory course for the AISF Transplant Hepatology exam and for the European Diploma in Transplant Medicine (UEMS – EBTM) exam.
