BASL2017 Annual Meeting is the leading Liver meeting in the UK bringing together clinicians, nurses, scientists and those interested in liver disease.
This year, the main meeting opens the Wednesday with a day devoted to cellular senescence. The second day has two streams: first, the interaction between the Liver and the Gut and second, the named lectures. These include the Ralph Wright Lecture (Professor John O’Grady) the British Liver Trust Lecture (Dr. Mary Ramsay), the inaugural Alex Mowat Lecture (Dr. Sue Beath) and the annual Dame Sheila Sherlock Prize Lecture. In the final morning we will follow the model from 2016 with a series of case-based discussions led by recognised experts in the field before a lunchtime departure.
Other events during the week include:
British Liver Transplant Group (BLTG) Transplant Meeting: Tuesday 19th – Wednesday 20th September.
As an affiliate of BASL, the BTLG has built on the role of the UK and Ireland Annual Meeting and will integrate the meetings previously organised by each individual transplant centre to offer a central stage for those operating in or with a strong interest in the field of liver transplantation.
This year’s meeting will be attended by both eminent UK and international speakers, including Professor Geoff McCaughan University of Sydney, Australia, and Professor Peter Friend who will deliver the distinguished Williams-Calne lecture.
BASL Nurse Forum Annual Meeting: Thursday 21st September
The liver nurses hold their Annual Meeting in parallel on the Thursday and this year this has especial importance as it will be celebrating the launch of the newly formed British Liver Nurses Association following a merger of the BLNF & the BASLNF. This day promises to deliver exciting and inspiring sessions for all nurses working within Hepatology, with the programme including a wide range of topics relating to liver disease and its associated issues and challenges.
