Webinar Conference 2020 | Hepatitis C Update

August 28, 2020

Course Description

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the most common blood-borne illness in the United States and is the leading cause of liver failure, liver cancer, and liver transplantation. Approximately half of persons with HCV have never been tested and do not know they are infected. The Hepatitis C Update 2020 aims to educate and train healthcare providers in the best practices for screening, diagnosing, management, and treatment to work towards eliminating viral hepatitis C in our communities. We will explore the nuances of providing care to this population through an intersectional lens. Our audience is primarily advanced practicing providers and students, Nurse Educators, Clinical Nurse Specialists, staff nurses, and other interested healthcare providers in primary care, urgent care, and inpatient settings.
