Call for applications for the roles of chair of two new Clinical Practice Guidelines on the liver involvement in systemic infections and in inflammatory systemic diseases

EASL has launched several highly influential Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs). The objective of these CPGs is to provide simple, clear, and evidence-based guidelines that can be used for patient management and reimbursement policies all over Europe. EASL CPGs have become a global reference, providing expert analysis of the latest data on the diagnosis and management of liver diseases.  

The development of CPGs is guided by EASL’s CPG development process, which is summarized in the attached editorial published in the January 2019 issue of the Journal of Hepatology. An important component of this process is the inclusion of a simplified Delphi process to reach a broader consensus and involve academic experts and other stakeholders beyond the CPGs panel and the EASL Governing Board.  

The EASL Governing Board has decided to develop two new CPGs, one on the liver involvement in systemic infections and one on the liver involvement in inflammatory systemic diseases, and we are now calling for applications for the position of Chair of the guidelines.  

The CPG on the liver involvement in systemic infections should indicatively cover tuberculosis, hepatic amoebiasis, hepatic actinomycosis, syphilis, leptospirosis, schistosomiasis, malaria, visceral leishmaniasis, Lyme’s disease, echinococcosis, ascariasis, strongyloides stercoralis, trichinosis, toxocara canis, liver flukes, rikketsial infections, fungal infections, pyogenic liver abscess, and viral infections (e.g. CMV, herpes virus, and HIV).  

The successful candidates will have an established track record of original research and excellent standing within the clinical community. The candidates will have in-depth experience in developing educational content for the hepatology community.

  • Particular attention will be paid to candidates with a strong clinical background. 
  • The candidate must be living in a European country, as defined by the World Health Organization.
