A warm welcome to Manchester from the BASL Committee
Please join us at Manchester Central for the Annual BASL Meeting (2016), which as ever will bring together clinicians, nurses, basic scientists, pharmacists, the pharmaceutical industry and all of us that are interested in liver disease.
The meeting follows on directly from the second meeting of the British Liver Transplant Group, which will include the Williams-Calne Lecture and many delegates will be attending both conferences. A BASL School of Hepatology runs in parallel with this meeting.
This year, the main meeting opens on the Wednesday afternoon with a symposium devoted to alcohol related liver disease. The second day takes a detailed look at the many manifestations of liver disease in relation to the age of the patient moving from obstetric liver disease, neonates, paediatrics and adolescence to adults as well as end of life care. The conference dinner follows this symposium and the venue will be the National Football Museum.
In place of a formal post-graduate teaching programme the final morning will be devoted to a series of case based discussions led by recognised experts in the field before a lunchtime departure.
Interspersed throughout the meeting will be oral presentations of the best of UK original research, supported by the poster programme.
Highlights of the BASL Annual Meeting will include three key-note lectures: The Ralph Wright Lecture, The British Liver Trust Lecture and the Dame Sheila Sherlock Prize Lecture.
The BASL Nurse Forum will hold the Annual Meeting in parallel on the second day and this year has a comprehensive programme with 14 varied speakers. The day will provide a broad range of topics for all nurses working within hepatology.
As always, we are grateful to all the Speakers and Chairs for their individual contributions.
We are also indebted to our sponsors without whom the meeting would be difficult to sustain.
Enjoy the conference!
