Differential Diagnosis Across the Life Span: Differential Diagnosis of Common Gastrointestinal Disorders Part 2: Liver Diseases and Anatomic Intestinal Disorders

Both liver diseases and anatomic intestinal disorders present with abdominal complaints. Providing a prompt differential diagnosis and corresponding treatment plan in such situations is therefore key to restoring patient well-being. This updated presentation will allow you to make practice decisions regarding abdominal and gastrointestinal findings with greater confidence and discernment.

This session uses differential diagnosis as a major organizing factor in order to arm the nurse practitioner with the essential background knowledge needed in order to distinguish between liver diseases and anatomic intestinal disorders. Its dynamic structure includes complex case studies and multiple-choice questions that build deeper comprehension of common real-life patient scenarios. Presentation, disease mechanisms, and treatment regimens are each discussed in rich detail. This session provides in-depth analyses of the following conditions:

Liver Diseases

  • Alcoholic liver disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Cirrhosis
  • Hepatitis

Anatomic Intestinal Disorders

  • Constipation
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Intussusception
  • Hernias
  • Neoplasm
  • Gastrointestinal bleeds
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
