Brief description This Centre will provide new information to improve clinical outcomes for people with chronic liver disease. Among people referred by GPs with abnormal liver tests, two thirds have hepatitis C or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. The Centre aims to develop non-invasive ways to identify those with progressive liver disease, and will assess whether lifestyle adjustments (diet and exercise) improve liver injury and fibrosis progression. They hope to improve the health and survival of people with advanced stage cirrhosis who are waiting for a liver transplant by correcting nutritional problems, osteoporosis and earlier detection and treatment of liver cancer. The program forms the basis for clinical research training for GPs, specialists, nurses, dieticians, sports medicine and other health care professionals.
