Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses (CAHN) is a national professional organization that represents and supports hepatology nurses across Canada. We promote leadership, clinical practice, education and research within the field of hepatology nursing.  The advancement of hepatology nursing requires evidence-informed practice, critical thinking and life-long learning. Toward this goal, CAHN’s Executive Committee has committed to supporting members in the dissemination of knowledge on a national and international stage.
