Programme Description

Guidance: NICE guidance NG49. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD): assessment and management. July 2016.

Dr Rachel Pryke explains how to implement the recommendations of the NICE guideline on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in primary care. The module outlines what’s new in the guidance, what to do differently in practice, which tests can be used to diagnose advanced liver fibrosis, when to refer patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to secondary care and how to manage patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in primary care.

  • Recall what’s new and what’s relevant to them in the July 2016 NICE guidance on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Describe which patients are most at risk of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • List the comorbidities that may be associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Diagnose patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease who are at risk of developing advanced fibrosis and need referral to a hepatologist
