Glendale, CA / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / June 21, 2014 / Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Gastroenterology Volume 28, Issue 07: Liver Disease: Electronic Records/HCV in Special Populations.
The goal of this program is to improve the use of electronic medical records (EMRs) and the management of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections in special patient populations. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Explain the benefits of EMRs.
2. Communicate desired future improvements in EMRs from the perspective of the gastroenterologist.
3. Choose optimal treatment options and timing of treatment for patients with HCV and advanced liver disease.
4. Select treatment regimens for patients coinfected with HIV and HCV that maximize response and minimize adverse drug-drug interactions.
5. Manage treatment of HCV in patients who have undergone liver transplantation.
The original programs were presented by Catherine T. Frenette, MD, Medical Director of Liver Transplantation, Scripps Clinic, La Jolla, CA, and Norman L. Sussman, MD, Associate Professor of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.
