Thanks for signing up to get involved with NSF! As a medical provider, you have the opportunity to play a significant role in our screening efforts.
Learn About Non-Invasive Screening Methods
Regardless of whether you are a primary care provider or a specialist, you can help us work towards a world less impacted by NAFLD/NASH by adopting non-invasive screening methods in your practice. You may know of some of these non-invasive testing methods already, but click on each below if you would like to learn more:
Update Your Clinical Care Pathway for NAFLD/NASH
Another way to get involved with the NSF is to consider adopting an updated clinical care pathway, such as the one below from this recent article.
Though the AASLD has not yet changed their guidelines to recommend screening in asymptomatic populations, doctors and advocacy groups have been working tirelessly towards an update. The importance of screening asymptomatic individuals cannot continue to be underemphasized when the majority of patients do not have symptoms until they reach end-stage disease! Join us and many others in being proactive in screening for NAFLD/NASH, and help your patients address their disease before it progresses further.
Stay Connected for Future Grant Funding Opportunities
As we grow the NSF, there will likely be opportunities to apply for grant funding to support adoption of non-invasive screening in your practice. If you would like to be alerted when grant opportunities become available, please email [email protected] with the subject line "Future Grant Opportunities," with your full name, your practice name and location, and the number of patients you expect to be able to screen per month. We look forward to working with you to bring non-invasive screening and proactive clinical care pathways to all Americans!
