BRAND NEW THIS YEAR!
The Skills Learning Centre

 

In the Skills Learning Centre (Hall 2), delegates will have the opportunity to look, learn, ask questions, and use material used for procedures under the tutelage of experts in the field. This new activity is presented in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during which delegates can talk with experts and ask an array of questions related to the practice of interventions in patients with liver disease.
