'A very useful conference and well worth a day out from the usual day job!.'

(2012 conference delegate).

Of the six leading causes of premature working age mortality, alcohol is implicated in four. Alcohol related deaths and hospital admissions are still rising but alcohol policy appears to have been derogated to the regions.

This one day medical conference  - co-badged by the British Society of Gastroenterology and the British Association for the Study of the Liver - will draw on the differing experiences of the devolved nations and will examine the impact of developing local hospital policies for the management of alcohol problems and their outreach into the community.

By attending the medical conference delegates will be better placed to understand what works in implementing effective change, developing local services, critically evaluating the evidence and will be more effective advocates with policy makers, the public and the media.

Programme highlights include:

  • implementing an evidence-based alcohol policy
  • primary care - getting GP colleagues on-board
  • alcohol care teams for Britain's hospitals
  • alcohol in the new public health system
  • partnership working and data sharing.

Who should attend this medical conference?

  • gastroenterology consultants and trainees
  • hepatology consultants and trainees
  • addiction specialists
  • policy makers and NGOs
  • alcohol specialist nurses
  • local government, commissioners and public health.
