Expert speakers are being confirmed nationally and internationally to bring you a multi-disciplinary perspective as well as in-depth relevancy for your nursing practice on the topics you have asked for.  We dive into difficult conversations with a pragmatic approach.

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Joint 2024 Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ and Canadian Liver Meeting Conference, taking place March 1-3, 2024 in Toronto, Ontario.

As was last year, the Conference will be another joint effort between the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology and the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, as well as their affiliates the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C, Canadian NASH Network, and Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses. Attendees will have full access to two distinct conferences – CDDW™ and CLM – as well as exceptional Symposia and programming such as the Gastroenterology Resident in Training Course and Research Topics program at the same time and under a single roof. We’re also so excited about the numerous opportunities for delegates from across the GI and hepatology communities to come together for shared networking and social events as part of the collaborative Conference.
