We have been working with Drs. Jan Diamond and Sophy Wong on efforts to increase access to hepatitis C treatment at our community health centers since 2015. We have heard from several clinics that patient navigators, case managers, MAs, and community health workers would like training on hepatitis C basics, as well as skills-building on patient navigation for hep C.
Participants: Hep C patient navigators, case managers, MAs supporting providers with hep C, community health workers, and other front line staff supporting hep C testing and treatment
Our tentative agenda for this first meeting includes:
* Hepatitis C 101 for patient navigators and other support staff
* Patient navigation basics for hepatitis C, including patient tracking tools
* Discussion of sample cases
* Q&A on hep C
We will send a more detailed agenda when the date gets closer. Please email Megan Crowley at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest in participating and to receive an Outlook invite by April 7. Feel free to invite any colleagues who will be supporting hep C work at your clinic.
