  • Overview

    As targeted therapies for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are approved for clinical use, managed care pharmacists will be challenged to make evidence-based treatment decisions for patients with NASH that improve patient outcomes and optimize health care resources. The aim of this interactive symposium is to help prepare managed care pharmacists for this important role. Expert faculty will discuss the morbidity, mortality and other costs of not treating patients with clinically significant fibrosis, which patients will be the likely candidates for targeted therapies for NASH and how to identify them, and the current status of clinical trials of these therapies.

  • Program Schedule

    • 6:00pm – 6:30pm: Registration & Dinner
    • 6:30pm – 6:55pm: Defining the Epidemic and Treating NASH: The Value Proposition
    • 6:55pm – 7:20pm: Practice Guidelines and Clinical Care Pathway for NAFLD and the Current Standard of Care
    • 7:20pm – 7:40pm: Emerging Therapies: Updates on Phase 3 Trials
    • 7:40pm – 7:50pm: Implications of the Approval of a Liver-Directed, NASH-Specific Therapy
    • 7:50pm – 8:00pm: Closing Remarks and Audience Q&A
  • Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest
