H.E.L.P. CME / CE Training Program

The Health Education for Liver Providers (H.E.L.P.) Training Program is designed to provide health care providers and their medical team core medical knowledge of hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV). Participants will be given an opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm with other health care providers with shared experiences. By the end of the training, participants will: 1) acquire core medical knowledge of hepatitis B and C; 2) acquire a team-based approach to increasing viral hepatitis screening and linking those infected to care; those who are HBV naïve (negative for HBsAg, antiHBs and antiHBcT) to vaccination; and education to avoid risks to HCV or HBV; and 3) have the tools and resources necessary to increase HBV and HCV screenings after the training.  Continuing medical education for physicians or Continuing education credits for pharmacists may be claimed after the completion of the training.
