Aims of the EASL Nurses & AHPs Task Force
To encourage professional development and to boost engagement among peers across Europe, EASL’s Nurses and AHPs Task Force has created this liver disease learning centre providing the latest educational resources and a series of interactive development activities. Our aims include:
- offering education in an alternative format that reflects current challenges for education provision
- encouraging engagement and fostering links within the community
- serving as a vehicle for inter-country discussion of practice and learning from one another

Nurses and AHPs during EASL Congress
Hepatology nurses and AHPs play an important role before and during the EASL Congress. They have an entire day dedicated to them, including the Nurses & AHPs Forum, poster tours, and oral presentations.

EASL Viewpoints - Nurses testimonials
EASL Viewpoints are testimonials, interviews, and videos from healthcare professionals sharing what life is like on the frontlines. In their testimonials, liver nurses tell how their working life is affected by COVID-19 and what might be to come.
To honour International Nurses’ Day, we interviewed Liver Nurse Educator at the Leeds Liver Unit and Lecturer in Adult Nursing at the University of Leeds, Michelle Clayton. Additionally, Miss Clayton is a pioneer leader in hepatology nursing, and is the chair of EASL’s Nurses and Allied Health Professionals Task Force.
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hepatology nurse Pamela Ballotta, from the Multivisceral Transplant Unit and Unit of Gastroenterology, Azienda Ospedaliera di Padova, Italy, describes how she and her nursing peers are adopting rigorous practices to carry forward.
