Webinar | Hep C Testing & Linkage to Care through the Lens of SUD Clinics
October 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Multifaceted barriers prevent many patients with hepatitis C (HCV) from receiving care and treatment, particularly among the most vulnerable populations, including those with substance use and mental health disorders. Conducted in partnership with the Harm Reduction Coalition, this unique webinar highlights key findings from a recent educational series to train counselors, clinicians, and other healthcare providers working in substance use disorder clinics to provide sustainable education to their patients on HCV risks, testing, and harm reduction. Expert faculty will share practical insights and results for increasing HCV awareness and knowledge among persons with substance use disorders, and strategies for strengthening testing and linkage to care.
This webinar is delivered in partnership with Harm Reduction Coalition. The content for the webinar is developed by PRIME.
