They first reflect on a case study session regarding a patient with alcoholic liver cirrhosis and ongoing alcohol abuse problems, highlighting the importance of a patient-centred approach and multidisciplinary team input. They then summarize the key messages from a ‘meet-the-experts’ session where two patients shared their experiences of receiving liver transplants, before exploring the importance of giving patients opportunities to optimise their care. Finally, they discussed a symposium on the benefits and challenges of collaborative working in palliative care.

EASL–Lancet Liver Commission: Protecting the next generation of Europeans against liver disease complications and premature mortality • Description This official launch marks the publication of the report of the EASL–Lancet Liver Commission: Protecting the next generation of Europeans against liver disease complications and premature mortality. This prestigious event is a culmination of many years of collaboration together, with a new momentum toward its solid implementation. The discussion will engage commissioners (contributors to the report), other high-level actors and experts from the European institutions, and patient representatives. Key topics of the report will be discussed, as well as how the European Union policy and funding initiatives can support both the recommendations and application of good practices throughout the EU. The goal of saving the lives of almost 300,000 people per year across Europe is what is driving this initiative. Policy actions for marketing, pricing, and taxation of alcohol and unhealthy foods are of paramount importance with an ability to reduce premature morbidity and save these hundreds of thousands of lives per year across the region. Target audience We warmly invite a broad range of stakeholders including primary care physicians, nurses, patients, peers, and members of relevant communities, along with medical specialists trained in obesity, diabetes, liver disease, oncology, cardiovascular disease, public health, addictions, infectious diseases, civil society organisations, representatives from patient organisations, policymakers, medical associations, and other actors involved in those topics in Europe and beyond.
