Upon completion of this session, you should be able to:
1. Use a stepwise diagnostic approach to evaluate patients with elevated liver transaminase levels if the history and physical examination do not suggest a cause.
2. Develop a collaborative care plan that involves observation with lifestyle modification as appropriate if the initial history, physical examination, and workup do not suggest a cause of elevated liver transaminase levels.
3. Coordinate referral and follow-up in patients with unexplained elevation of liver transaminase levels for six months or more.
