ECHO-Chicago: Hepatitis C (Session XXII)

January 24, 2017 to March 28, 2017
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 in some of Chicago’s most underserved neighborhoods. HCV has surpassed HIV/AIDS as the leading chronic virus infection leading to death in the United States. 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. 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.

  • Identify patients at-risk for Hepatitis C and the need for testing;
