The inaugural event for the Liver Transplantation Journal Club kicks off Wednesday, August 15 with a moderated Twitter discussion on the pros and cons of steroid weaning in transplant recipients with autoimmune hepatitis.
The article that has been selected for discussion comes from one of the newer features in Liver Transplantation called “Controversies in Transplantation.” Each month a topic is selected, and authors are chosen to present the pro and con perspectives of the topic. The Journal Club discussion will take that debate a step further by allowing the authors and others to discuss the topic online through a live Twitter discussion.
The discussion, on August 15 at 6:00 pm ET, is open to anyone with an interest in the topic. It will take place on the Liver Transplantation Twitter account, using the hashtag #LTxJournalClub. Participants can follow that hashtag to see all of the posts on the topic and can participate by adding the hashtag at the end of their Tweet.
