Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Communicate the prevalence of HE and define the complications and consequences associated with chronic liver disease, with focus on HE
• Identify the importance of early recognition of and screening for HE and describe the screening methods
• Describe the economic, patient and caregiver burdens associated with cirrhosis and HE
• Apply techniques to properly treat HE patients, including strategies for successfully transitioning patients from inpatient HE care to outpatient HE care in order to prevent disease recurrence and hospital readmissions
