Welcome to New Insights into HE, an educational website developed for physicians
and other healthcare providers with an interest in improving the identification
and management of patients with hepatic encephalopathy (HE).
This website includes a number of different ‘Modules’ which may be accessed according
to your own educational needs and preferences. The content, developed by an international
faculty, will review the pathogenesis of HE, the burden on patients and healthcare
resources and the latest information on appropriate management. There are also interactive,
case-based activities, to help you consider how you will apply the information presented,
and a summary of the must know literature in the field.
We hope you find the resource interesting and clinically relevant, with content
that has direct benefits to patient management.
