H.E.L.P. 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
