Overview

New medications have been recently approved for the treatment of liver diseases with which many providers are unfamiliar. Additionally, many providers are unfamiliar with a multidisciplinary approach to management of patients with liver disease. Providers are also uncertain when to refer patients for a liver transplant evaluation often referring after the patient is too sick to receive a transplant.
