DiMartini, Galati and Powers John Ontiveros, LCSW and Shelley Spector, LCSW 3:00 A New Approach to Liver Transplantation for Alcoholics: Moving the Goal Posts Closer Michael R. Lucey, M.D. Liver transplantation for patients with acute and chronic alcohol related liver disease is in a time of transition. The long-standing “six-month” rule is an outdated process with no scientific merit. Transplant programs around the country are looking to phase out this approach, and there has never been a more urgent time to discuss the approach to these patients openly. This program will address new approaches to transplantation in alcoholic liver disease from a multidisciplinary group of experts. Target Audience Internists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, psychiatrists, addiction medicine specialists, nurses, social workers, and other health care professionals involved in transplantation of alcoholic liver disease. Educational Methods Didactic Lectures, Case Studies Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to: • Assess patients with acute alcoholic hepatitis and address proper medical management • Recognize alcoholism and problematic alcohol consumption and its evaluation and referral to relapse prevention programs • Define appropriate patient selection for liver transplantation • Discuss post liver transplant relapse prevention in patients with alcoholic liver disease • Recognize the required interdisciplinary approach to the care of patients with advanced liver disease due to acute and chronic alcohol use
