Simplifying and Demystifying
Hepatitis C Management
In HCV, we find an opportunity to make a rapid and profound public health improvement in the US. The disease is widespread, underscreened, and undertreated, and it causes massive medical costs, serious illness, and death. But the enormous progress made in screening, evaluating, and treating the disease over the last several years has provided many of the tools needed to address and eventually eradicate the disease.
HCV can now be cured in the vast majority of patients, even those with advanced disease. But we still face major implementation barriers. Your participation in this program can help to address two of the most important breakdown points in the treatment cascade: insufficient screening and a critical shortage of HCV treaters.
Simplifying and Demystifying Hepatitis C Management, jointly sponsored by the American Academy of CME and NovaMed, includes a patient education video-based program, a clinician resource toolbox, and a 3-part CME/CNE curriculum designed to prepare newer HCV treaters to effectively manage uncomplicated patients with HCV.
Each module in this series includes a self-paced online multimedia activity and a live Office Hours session in which our expert faculty will answer your questions.
Join our faculty, Dr. Stacey Trooskin of Philadelphia FIGHT and Dr. Nancy Reau of Rush University Medical College now for module 1.
This resource toolbox is a quick-reference page for the tools you need at your fingertips to manage patients with HCV.
The toolbox includes screening and treatment guidelines, assessment tools, patient education resources, and much more.
This video-based program covers topics from HCV facts 101 to screening to treatment and beyond.
Its fun, engaging format enables patients to focus on the topics that interest them most. Many resources are provided to help patients access screening and other clinical and supportive services.
