UK Liver Histopathology CPD events:
Annual Liver Pathology Symposia / update meetings
These have been held every year since 2006 - see below for programmes and powerpoint presentations
Liver biopsy in the assessment of medical liver disease
This course, organised by Prof. Stefan Hübscher, was delivered for the eighth time on Friday February 23rd 2018.
The powerpoint presentations from this course are now available here.
The course is designed for general histopathologists and hepatologists.
You can view the digital scanned slides for the cases that were discussed at the meeting, by following this link
The annual course provides a practical diagnostic approach to reporting medical liver biopsies, focusing on the importance of clinico-pathological correlation in assessing common patterns of liver damage. We anticipate that it will be heald again in 2019.
Recommended for senior trainees in Pathology and Hepatology and consultant histopathologists and gastroenterologists who are regularly involved in liver biopsy assessment (without necessarily working in a Liver Unit).
Histopathology Workshop on Liver Pathology
This is a slide based workshop, with pre-view of cases followed by presentations, and covers medical liver biopsies and liver tumour pathology. Further information is available here
The digital slides of the cases discussed and the PDF versions of the presentations from the fourth meeting on 13th April 2018 are available here:
- Stefan Hübscher - Focal Liver Lesions [slides and ppt]
- Sue Davies - medical liver biopsies, fatty and cholestatic [slides and ppt]
- Judy Wyatt - medical liver disease, hepatitis and vascular [slides and ppt]
The workshop format is intended to complement the annual RCPath course 'Liver biopsy in the assessment of medical liver disease' - this will next be held in February 2019.
Liver EQA educational participation
Some previous circulations of the liver EQA have been re-formatted to provide self-assessment CPD for non-EQA members. This is available to consultants and trainee histopathologists, by following this link
