What is Liver Disease Medical Support Team?

Okayama University Hospital, the core hospital in Okayama Prefecture for the medication of liver disease, serves in a central role as a medical network of primary care and specialists. It runs Okayama Prefecture’s Liver Disease Consultation Center in cooperation with the liver disease medical support team, comprising various professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, clinical trial coordinator, and a medical secretary.
The patients can receive antiviral therapy with successive medical support in inpatient and outpatient clinics by sharing medical information such as patient compliance. At the outpatient clinic for gastroenterology, nurses conduct face-to-face consultations before doctors’ examinations to achieve good therapeutic effects for patients who are undergoing anti-viral therapy.
