Hep C: Working Towards a Cure as a Community

Wednesday, May 16, 2018: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Skyway Suite AB (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
We will spend this workshop discussing ways in which you can identify and work with community partners to address chronic hepatitis C infections in your clients.  We will start with an overview of hepatitis C, how it impacts people experiencing homelessness, and then will discuss what treatment entails.  We will then talk about how to identify and engage community partners in this work.  We will then provide sample health center-level and individual-level data pertaining to hepatitis C and utilize small groups to identify and carry out performance improvement initiatives.  Learn how to develop your hepatitis C care cascade!
