Invitation: Participate in CASL Survey on Alcohol-Associated Liver Disease

The Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver (CASL) – ALD Special Interest Group is inviting health care providers and colleagues to complete a survey on “Provider Attitudes and Practices for Alcohol Screening, Treatment, and Education in Patients with Alcohol-associated Liver Disease in Canada.”

The said survey is part of a research study to identify knowledge gaps in the management practices of Alcohol-associated Liver Disease (ALD) across Canada. It has been developed in consideration of significant knowledge gaps in alcohol use screening, referrals for behavioral therapy, utilization of alcohol use disorder pharmacotherapy, and management practices nationwide. Led by principal investigator, Dr. Nabiha Faisal, the survey has been approved by the University of Manitoba Health Research Ethics Board.

The CASL – ALD Special Interest Group aims to develop practice guidance documents specific to ALD in the Canadian context.

Respondents’ expertise and insights are invaluable, and would be greatly appreciated. Responses to this 10-minute survey are strictly confidential.

My name is Smitha Yaltho and I feel privileged to work as a family physician. Why? I believe that being a family physician has been the best job any physician can hope to have. I have personally grown in my own abilities and skill-sets with diverse opportunities in ambulatory practice, acute care and work in Facility Living.  Working in primary care has been exciting and has also afforded me tremendous opportunities for growth while still remaining stimulating in its complexity.  I believe that Family physicians are trusted partners in patient care –  every step of the way. 

Why are you volunteering to serve on this committee?
I currently have an interest in Physician Leadership and  trauma informed care.  I have served as a director with the Board of Directors with the Edmonton North PCN, Edmonton’s largest PCN. Thereafter, I have worked as the Director of Medical Services with CapitalCare (also based in Edmonton) for almost 6 years. It is my express wish that my contribution on the ACFP board of directors will highlight the excellence of family medicine that exists right here and now within the Alberta health care system. 

What about the ACFP’s work do you find most valuable?
Ability to highlight and further support the excellence of primary care right here in Alberta.
