Canadian Liver Meeting 2022 - Ottawa

 

 


Canadian Liver Meeting (CLM)

The Canadian Liver Meeting is a collaborative effort of the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver (CASL), the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C (CanHepC), the Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses (CAHN), and the Canadian NASH Network (CanNASH). The meeting program offers a forum for presentation and discussion of basic science, translational and clinical aspects of liver disease. This is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, promote collaboration and foster knowledge translation among Canadian researchers, healthcare practitioners, and community-based groups with interest in Hepatology.

CASL is a multidisciplinary group of scientists and healthcare providers whose expertise focuses on the liver, and provides national leadership in all aspects of research, education and patient care as they pertain to the liver. 

CASL is a non-profit organization that seeks to eliminate liver disease through research, education and advocacy. Its members include hepatologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, pediatricians, radiologists, scientists, surgeons, trainees and other interested people.

 

CanHepC is a translational hepatitis C research and training network funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) linking over 100 researchers, trainees, knowledge-users from across Canada as well as international partners.

Our overarching goal is to improve health outcomes for people living with hepatitis C at all stages of the cascade of care. We aim to close the gap between knowledge and practices, and train and build capacity in research.

 

CAHN is a national professional organization that represents and supports hepatology nurses across Canada. We promote leadership, clinical practice, education, and research in hepatology nursing. Hepatology nursing is a specialized area of client-centered nursing that focus on the promotion of liver health, prevention of illness, and the care of clients. Since most liver diseases are chronic in nature, hepatology nursing practice promotes self-care, advocates for resources and supports the client though the illness experience.  

The Canadian NASH Network is a collaborative organization of health care professionals from across Canada with a primary interest in enhancing understanding, care of, education and research in persons with NAFLD with a vision of best practices for this disease state.

The CanNASH Special Interest Group meets at least twice a year, usually at the Annual CASL meeting and at AASLD.
