The common end point for all liver diseases is cirrhosis, a condition in which the scarred liver is no longer responsive to treatment and continues to deteriorate potentially causing death if there is no intervention. Liver transplantation is a life-saving option. However, many people cannot receive a liver transplant due to critical organ donor shortages across the country. Under the supervision of Dr. Puneeta Tandon, Emma Hjartarson will survey patients with cirrhosis and note their readiness for advanced care planning (ACP), their understanding, and expectations.
