Hepatitis C

Every Friday 8:00-9:00 AM

HCV has surpassed HIV/AIDS as the leading chronic virus infection leading to death in the U.S.. An estimated 70,000 individuals in the Chicago area are unaware of their positive Hepatitis C (HCV) status. Luckily, early detection and treatment in the primary care setting can contribute to lower rates of morbidity and mortality, reduce the risk of disease progression, and maximize the benefits of emerging treatment options. The ECHO-Chicago curriculum in Hepatitis C (HCV) is designed to expand primary care capacity for HCV screening and evidenced-based care at community health centers, especially those in underserved neighborhoods. ECHO-Chicago training provides primary care providers with the knowledge to identify persons at risk for HCV and conduct risk assessments, test, diagnose, counsel, stage, monitor and treat persons with HCV. This series is open to all primary care providers.

Topics for Case-Based Learning and Discussion Include:

  • Hepatitis C overview
  • Staging and progression in HCV
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Treatment of Genotype 1
  • Case management & wraparound services
  • Obtaining medications for HCV patients
  • HCV treatment monitoring
  • Treatment of Genotypes 2-4
  • Management of HIV/HCV co-infection
