This series will enable MD, PA, NP, PharmD, DO, along with their support staff to assist their patients through the cascade of care for hepatitis C. The LIPs will learn about the medications to prescribe for treatment. The inclusion of the support staff in this training will help to ensure that the implementation of this new skill set in your practice is successful. Through 6 (six) one hour weekly sessions, specialists in hepatitis C will come to you via ECHO/Zoom to expand your foundation of knowledge on this curable chronic disease. This is designed to be six parts of one whole session, with equivalent content to our one day training conference. Please do make every effort to attend each one.
