Recently, AASLD developed a new initiative between our associate members and the Liver Transplantation journal with the help of Editor-in-Chief Paul Martin, MD, FAASLD, HoChong Gilles, DNP, FNP-C, chair of the AASLD Hepatology Associates Special Interest Group and Patrick Horne, MSNB, ARNP, FNP-BC, chair of the AASLD Hepatology Associates Committee. Together, they have launched a new way for our associate members to access selected articles from the latest issue of Liver Transplantation which they feel are of particular interest to nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
The first issue contains 10 articles on topics such as living donor liver transplantation, managing portal hypertension, updated Hepatitis B guidelines and more. “The selected articles touch on various aspects of liver disease commonly encountered in everyday clinical practice. We feel these articles provide valuable scientific and clinical information that is of interest to the hepatology associates,” said Ms. Gilles and Mr. Horne.
Mr. Horne added, “I selected articles that touch on various aspects of liver disease that will commonly be seen in everyday clinical practice. I feel these articles provide valuable clinical information that is of interest to me in clinical practice and feel they will be to others as well.”
While some AASLD associate members do not have access to the Liver Transplantation journal, they will be able to access the selected articles by logging in with their username and password on aasld.org. New articles will be selected and reviewed quarterly for associate members to access.
