Enhancing The HCV Care Model: Best Practices for Universal Testing & Linkage to Care

Apr 21, 2021  02:00 PM  EST

Join the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium for a 4-session learning collaborative focused on improving screening and treatment of HCV. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an epidemic with serious clinical implications for infected patients. Community health centers are uniquely positioned to test and treat these viral infections by screening all patients for HCV. In the wake of the CDC’s 2019 updated recommendations for universal HCV screening among U.S. adults aged 18 years and older, there is much to be done to make universal testing and treatment cost-effective and standardized within primary care. Faculty for this learning collaborative include an infectious disease physician, a provider in community health, an HCV/HIV Patient Navigator, and policy advocates who will share their expertise and examples demonstrating best practices in screening.

Registration for this Learning Collaborative is now closed.

 

Schedule:

  • Module 1: Enhancing HCV Screening and Treatment: April 21, 2021 at 2:00 pm ET
  • Module 2: Administrative & Testing: May 5, 2021 at 2:00 pm ET

  • Module 4: Linkage to Care: Precursors to HCV Treatment: June 2, 2021 at 2:00 pm ET

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide quality care by aligning clinical practices to meet the needs of the population, including the barriers they face to seek screening and treatment.
  • Understand a comprehensive care model and coordination of care for HCV.
  • Recognize the importance of coordinating hepatitis C treatment and prevention.
