Liver Disease Medical Support Team

The Liver Disease Medical Support Team comprises various professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, the Medical Service of Medical Affairs Division, clinical trial coordinator, and liver transplantation coordinator. Okayama University Hospital, which is the core hospital for liver disease medical cooperation in Okayama Prefecture, serves in a central role as a core hospital. The Team runs Okayama Prefecture’s Liver Disease Consultation Center in cooperation with other professions. We have prepared a system for collaboration using sharing tools such as patient compliance instructions by pharmacists, in wards and outpatient clinics for patients who started interferon therapy at this hospital to be able to provide continued support smoothly. 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.
