"HCV infection has become a growing public health threat in the United States," said Mark Sulkowski, MD, Medical Director of the Viral Hepatitis Center at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. "The recent development of highly effective antiviral regimens has led to a cure for most patients, making the eradication of HCV a feasible goal, but well-coordinated multidisciplinary care teams are equally necessary to achieve this objective."
The collaboration between Johns Hopkins and Med-IQ on this initiative was formed to educate local clinicians on the barriers that influence the delivery of optimal, coordinated care to patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Workshop participants explore strategies for identifying and managing HCV and learn best practices for forming local, cohesive, strategic care teams for patients with HCV and/or at high risk of HCV acquisition, such as those who are addicted to opioid medications.
With 3 workshops scheduled in the Maryland and Pennsylvania areas, the goal is to educate as many clinicians as possible on this growing epidemic:
