Now Available On-Demand: Engaging the Primary Care Provider as Part of the Hepatitis C (HCV) Workforce
What is the role of primary care in combating the hepatitis C (HCV) epidemic? This on-demand webinar is designed to build knowledge and skills of the primary care provider workforce to implement effective HCV care and treatment in their practices, including the use of simplified HCV treatment strategies and strategies for providing culturally-responsive, comprehensive HCV care. The webinar is formatted as a panel discussion with presentations from two faculty.
1.0 free CME, CE, and CPE are available for this webinar.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe how to incorporate evidence-based guidelines for screening and evaluating patients for HCV infection in the primary care setting.
- Explain the importance of effective follow-up and counseling for patients upon a confirmed diagnosis of HCV infection.
- Describe how to implement direct-acting antiviral agents into individualized treatment plans for patients with HCV infection in accordance with current guidelines and expert recommendations.
Identify strategies that support a multidisciplinary team-based approach for treating HCV infection, to distinguish patients who can be managed in the primary care setting versus those requiring linkage to specialist care.
