Patient care will improve if we increase knowledge and teaching. For this reason, training is one of the key activities of our network. This includes the organization of postgraduate schools, workshops and webinars for doctors and student doctors specialising in rare liver diseases. In addition, specialist nurse training is a key part of our activities.
