Implementing Screening for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Endocrinology Clinics
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) remains underrecognized by health care providers. The primary purpose of this quality improvement project was to increase identification of NAFLD among patients with T2D followed in an endocrinology practice using an evidence-based algorithm to risk stratify patients. Pre- and post-intervention analysis revealed a significant 36% increase in screening for NAFLD post-intervention (P < 0.001).
