Talking about liver disease risk: Liver Talks training resource
Liver Talks: Let’s talk about liver disease risk is a free resource for health professionals created with people at risk of liver disease and clinicians.
Talking to people about liver disease can be challenging, there’s often low awareness and stigma about the condition. Liver Talks provides an opportunity for teams to discuss and reflect on their experiences and identify strategies for having effective conversations.
The resource includes a one-hour session plan, a PowerPoint presentation and an animation. The session can be delivered by a team member as part of team meetings or development session.
The animation was created with people at risk of liver disease who share their experiences in their own words.
Liver Talks was created by Vocal, patients and members of the Vocal Liver Network and the University of Manchester as part of the ID LIVER project. The British Liver Trust is part of the ID LIVER project and has provided guidance and support.
ID LIVER is led by The University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with The University of Nottingham, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and industry partners. It’s funded by the Innovate UK Challenge Fund (2020 –2024). Development and production of the Liver Talks film was funded by UKRI Research England.
