4.Th HCV (Hepatitis C) Current: Resources for Behavioral Health & Medical Professionals
New England ATTC

Event Type: Educational Event
What: Approximately 2.5 to 4 million people are infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the United States (SAMHSA, 2014). Baby boomers (those born between 1945 and 1965) and persons with mental health and substance use disorders face an increased risk for infection. Among people who have used or currently use intravenous drugs, one in three young adults and three in four older adults are HCV infected (CDC, 2014). Dramatic medical advances in the past few years have revolutionized the course of HCV treatment, increasing the role of primary care and behavioral health settings in addressing this public health concern. The training addresses opportunities for promoting HCV screening and testing, strategies for linking patients to treatment, available treatment options, and patient considerations for treatment.
