Description:

Registration required.

Cirrhosis is a chronic disease that is increasing in prevalence, that affects ~5-10 million adult Americans. While most patients with cirrhosis are compensated (not very sick), they too require resource-intensive, chronic and expensive care - that is underappreciated. Many opportunities exist to improve care for patients with cirrhosis.
