CASL is a multidisciplinary group of scientists and healthcare providers whose expertise focuses on the liver, and provides national leadership in all aspects of research, education and patient care as they pertain to the liver. 

CASL is a non-profit organization that seeks to eliminate liver disease through research, education and advocacy. Its members include hepatologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, pediatricians, radiologists, scientists, surgeons, trainees and other interested people.
 
CanHepC is a collaborative research network funded by the  Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)  and the  Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)  dedicated to translational research linking over 100 researchers, trainees, knowledge-users (community members, community-based organizations, policy and decision makers) in the field of Hepatitis C (HCV) from across Canada as well as international partners.




CAHN is a national professional organization that represents and supports hepatology nurses across Canada. We promote leadership, clinical practice, education, and research in hepatology nursing. 

Hepatology nursing is a specialized area of client-centered nursing that focus on the promotion of liver health, prevention of illness, and the care of clients. Since most liver diseases are chronic in nature, hepatology nursing practice promotes self-care, advocates for resources and supports the client though the illness experience.
