Thursday, 20 December 2012 10:00
The BSG, together with the Health Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) are funding a multicentre audit of management of Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH), a condition managed by most Hepatologists and many Gastroenterologists in the UK.
There have been few randomised trials in AIH and a recent nationwide online survey (Dhaliwal et al Gut 2012; 61:A197) has suggested striking variation in management strategies. The aim of the audit is to assess the outcome of patients AIH across a large part of the UK and its association with different management strategies.
