In the leadup to World Hepatitis Day, CATIE, Canada’s source for HIV and Hepatitis C information, is partnering with the BC Hepatitis Network to deliver a training course for you and your colleagues on Hepatitis C Treatment. This course is being delivered to frontline workers across British Columbia.
CATIE’s Hepatitis C Treatment course aims to develop in-depth knowledge on the treatment of hepatitis C for frontline service providers working with clients who have hepatitis C or are at risk for hepatitis C. Through this course, participants will gain information on the benefits of treatment and an overview of what treatment for hepatitis C typically includes. This course will help participants to be able to accurately answer client questions on hepatitis C treatment options, access to treatment, and additional considerations for treatment. Participants will emerge with strategies to support clients before, during, and after treatment.
