Patients with chronic liver disease need information on the disease to keep their good quality of life. Educational class on liver disease is one of solutions for that. We have started the class in 1992, and continued to run it once per month. Exchange of information among patients at group work is also helpful to relief their anxiety related to their disease. Many hospitals are now preparing to establish such classes in Japan. In this article, we present tips on providing information to patients with chronic liver diseases and advice on class management.
