Help recognize Hepatitis Awareness Month by attending two webinars showcasing NVHR's 2017 Hepatitis C Project Booster Mini-Grant Projects!

Each organization will provide a summary of their one-year project's work including findings, challenges, and lessons learned. The webinars will include opportunities for discussion and audience question and answer.
 
Part 1:
  • Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program's project increased the number of patients they were able to serve, improved the quality of services provided, and implemented strategies to prevent reinfection for patients who have completed treatment.
  • Centerforce's project trained hepatitis C (HCV) prisoner peer health educators to conduct prevention and treatment classes and also worked to increase the number of prisoners in custody and in the community who received HCV screening and care.
  • The Community Health Outreach Work to Prevent AIDS Project (CHOW Project)'sinitiative was to develop a confidential registry that tracked all CHOW participants on Oahu Island along the HCV continuum of care. By linking the registry to the CHOW Participant Card numbers, the project allowed CHOW outreach staff to increase engagement and data collection around HCV testing and linkage efforts. 
Tuesday May 15, 2018 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM Eastern

 
Part 2:
  • American Association of Occupational Health Nurses Foundation's project advanced occupational and environmental health nurse HCV competency, shared best practices to improve HCV knowledge of employees, and HCV testing and care linkage for at-risk employees. 
  • BOOM!Health's project increased the number of participants who were screened, linked to care, and who completed treatment. 
  • North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition's project supported HCV-positive participants by providing transportation to medical appointments, and enhancing engagement in HCV testing and educational and supportive programming at the syringe exchange. 
  • Roots Community Health Center increased the identification and treatment of HCV infection among low-income communities in California by documenting and sharing best practices for implementation of routine screening and treatment in the community clinic setting, including staffing, training, and billing practices and developing a sustainability model for HCV treatment in the primary care setting.
Monday May 21, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern.
